The past few days at my house have been like a nuclear winter. There’s so much crap in the air from the fires burning in and around LA that everything outside is covered in ash, the little sunlight that is able to reach us is reddish-yellow, and the sun itself looks like a huge red fireball.
The closest fire is 40 miles away, but you’d think it was a whole lot closer if you looked outside. I guess the one good thing about this is that the 95+ degree temperatures that were supposed to reach us this weekend never happened. The ash is keeping the air temperature down in the upper 70s.
Active Fire Maps are cool to look at.
