This photo doesn't really show just how hazy it is, and now some breeze is coming through that sort of moves the smoke away, but is probably not helping the fire fighting efforts at all.
You can smell and taste the smoke more than you can see it. It's in my eyes and throat. We did some work outside earlier today, but have retreated to hear the air conditioning to try and stay out of the sun and get sort-of slightly cleaner air to breathe.
Mind you, compared to the people in Redding and the other places who have lost their lives and homes due to fires, we have it easy here. We just hope nothing breaks out nearby. With the hot wind, everything is tinder dry.
