In the Bay Area, the situation for the past few days has been hazy and smoky. The smoke blowing into the Bay Area is coming from a fire north, near Ukiah and winds have been directing smoke from that fire south toward the bay area.
Advisories have been broadcast over the past few days, warning older individuals to stay indoors, and for those who exercise outdoors to take a break and hold off for a few days. The air quality for the northern and eastern regions bay areas have been rated the worst in years, and residents state they can feel and see the difference.
For sunset lovers, this situation has been giving us brilliant red-orange sunsets and the sunrises haven't too shabby also! Tonight I recorded the sun low to the rooftops more than an hour before sunset, and already the sun painted the sky orange through the smoke and haze.
pelicans were flying during tonight's
sunset to my pleasure
28 June UPDATE: As of today, there are more than 1,300 fires, some big but many small. Northern California has the majority of the fires. Starting possibly Monday, wind currently blowing north off the ocean will clear the Bay Area skies which has been draped in smoky haze for over a week.
