You’ve seen it on the news, I’m guessing. California is on fire.
The odd, hot and stormy weather created lightening strikes (which never happens) and that set the dry grasses across the state on fire.
Plus, some idiots decided to start a few… they have people in custody. Idiots.
The smoke is very thick. My eyes and throat itch. I’m sure the horses feel it… I look outside and it reminds me of Bladerunner or some eerie doomsday dystopia.
My work has closed down until this is over.
Is there a silver lining? Dunno. Maybe it is time for Mother Nature to cut back all the fuel in the forests… It was supposed to be 111 degrees today but ended up only being 103 due to the smoke covering the sun…
I feel so much empathy for animal owners across the state… and for the wildlife.
Here is a map of CA. The black circle is where we live (no fires nearby). Yesterday, I drove from my house to San Francisco to visit my mother. I drew a line of that path. As you can see, I passed multiple fires. The smoke was thick everywhere.
COMPARISON PICS FROM HERE. (And we aren’t even close to a fire…)
After I took the smokey pics today, I looked back at them and, to be honest, the reality is far more murky and dense. My camera is a bit too generous here. The smoke is bad.
