I took these pictures at 8 o clock Tuesday morning from my front and back decks, and I don’t know if you can see, but the sun has a weird ring around it and the sky has a thick orange haze. Everywhere you go in the bay area, it smells like smoke. It’s been like this for 5 days now!
There’s something like 1,000 wildfires burning right now in California, the majority of them in the Northern part of the state. Lucky me… I live in the SF bay area, not far from where one of the biggest fires is burning. Despite the offshore breezes, the air quality here in the bay area and central California is absolutely awful. There is so much smoke in the air , the winds aren’t helping. It’s not unusual to fires here during the summer, but in all my life Ive never seen it ( or smelt it) this bad.
So far it hasn’t had a noticeable effect on my breathing ( I even walked through it yesterday… like an idiot), but if the air doesn’t clear up soon, no doubt there will be lots of people getting sick….myself included.
