It’s hot and dry. The west coast is burning. California is getting most of the news, but Oregon and Washington are in a bad way also. Here, the light is orange, the sky smoke-filled, evacuations ordered in the various levels, 1 (prepare), 2 (get ready), and 3 (leave immediately). We’re not at evacuation level 1 yet, but across the county line a street away they are.
This top picture was taken Tuesday afternoon about 3:00 p.m. That’s smoke, not clouds!
This next one was taken yesterday afternoon about the same time. Again, smoke!
This is frightening. We’re really stressed, and I can’t seem to get any reading or anything else done. We’re just glued to the news reports.
