Smoke from wildfires

Smoke from the wildfires in central Washington moved over the Puget Sound in the western part of the state over the weekend, creating very hazy conditions in our neighborhood.

Portland's air quality was actually worse than in Beijing, according to Cliff Mass's weather blog: is about two hours south of us.

I love color, but not this kind. Here's to hoping the firefighters, who have come from as far away as Australia, stay safe.

So sorry to see all the fires this year... we've had our share in Az over the years, but nothing like what's been going on in CA, OR and WA. Hoping and praying for rain to come, but not too much or there will be floods and mudslides. :-(
