Over at Clamhead, Keri has posted a picture of the skies as they look in our area, due to the fires. She's about 30 miles closer than I am to where the fires are, but the skies at my house look just the same. It's a crazy, hazy orange sky.
Everything is covered in ash and the smell of smoke burns your nose. Where we live, we at least get some of the on-shore breeze from the ocean, and the smoke is still making me crazy. I can't imagine living closer, like my colleagues do. Two of them evacuated their homes on Friday. Fortunately, both will have homes to go to tonight, as the fire has moved away from their area.
