A large area of smoke from wildfires in British Columbia has drifted down over us during the last 24 hours. As a result it looks like September right now for those of you that aren’t stuck under the low cloud cover. A sickly yellow-orange sun and very hazy sky. NESDIS tracks the smoke and here’s the image confirming where it came from. I also included the visible image from this morning. You can see it’s a narrow area of northwest Oregon, but much thicker up over Eastern Washington..
I’m on vacation this week…kind of a quiet one. Today’s job is pouring footings for a chicken coop (kids want chickens), maybe a quick bike ride? A quick afternoon nap? Can’t decide yet.
