Just As I Thought

Where there’s haze there’s fire

The Bay Area is hazy today. In San Jose this is unusual, the skies are usually clear here with a little smog now and then; but today there’s haze everywhere you look because of two big fires. One is south of here a little ways, the other is more than 200 miles to the northeast. Both are covering us with smoke and particulates that made the sunrise red. Here are some views from the Lick Observatory of the valley. First, pictures from the beginning of the fire to the south, which is now called the Lick fire…

And these pictures are from just now, showing the smoke hanging over us…

  • I wondered what was going on; the sky was such a weird shade of peach when I left the house this morning.
