Photo doesn’t do it justice but here is our 11 am sun for today’s dystopian landscape in the Bay Area. At least the smoke and haze are maybe keeping away the 100+ temps we had the last two days? And the all pervasive acrid burnt wood smell has given away to an odd warm dirt odor. Rolling with all this, assuming there will be better days ahead.
jinx we both posted about it at the same time 😜
here in the richmond district, sf, it is a greyish yellow with the sun an orange color………
let’s hope so — otherwise, welcome to the hot future….

No sun here.
I was thinking it smelled like coffee! Coffee brewing all over the Bay Area!
That’s a great description … odd warm dirt odor
black hole sun
At least it’s not the toxic contents of 100s of garages.
Ya know, I was kind of wondering if the dust and soot might actually be a benefit to that giant portion of Iowa corn fields that were flattened by the Derecho. Because we got the drafts on the jet stream two nights ago and the winds were incredible. You could see the particles up high in the washy clouds and a red tinge around the moon in a moon dog circle.
Oh, and did you hear that it snowed in South Dakota and Colorado last night? We just went from 80 something to 50 something in a day.
Not to discount your current Apocalypse, or anything. We like visitors, sort of. But our city is about to have a bunch of empty space for distancing.
Sylvia Wood sounds like homes are burning now. Forest is one thing but losing homes really sucks.
Lauren Drow are you in Iowa? I heard the Derecho was pretty horrible.
John Mosbaugh, Minnesota. But I joined some Derecho groups after it happened because it wasn’t really being covered in the news. You can see a huge swath of crops that were flattened from space. Power was out for days in many areas. Reports of 13 million acres of crops, or 43% were lost.
