Here’s a pic from outside my living room showing the smoke from Arizona. It’s bad enough we’ve had to shut all the windows and turn off the swamp cooler…meaning it’s about to get HOT in the house.

The camera kept trying to auto-correct the sky colors and the flash was the only way to trick it into showing the actual color.

I went out a few minutes ago and you could see the particular matter in the air in the headlights; all the other lights were haloing and starring from the refraction. Horrible breathing conditions.

On the up side, the atmospherics gave me an idea for a mystery/modern western novel…
