Fire day

I was outside playing with the kids today for most of the afternoon. Between 4 & 5 I noticed that it was getting hazy, and the sunlight was turning orange....it felt more like fall sunlight, than height of summer sunlight. By 7 it looked like this


This is from our backyard looking southeast.


This is also from our backyard looking north. We closed up the house and cranked on the A/C right after (before?) I took these...with that much crap in the air, I didn't want to trigger an asthma attack. allanh and his lovely husband Randy came over for dinner and told us the fire was somewhere close to the 9 in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  At least we don't have to worry about the fire reaching us...but the sky looks AWFUL.

Actually, it's the other side of 9. I looked it up this morning:

Zoom OUT 4 or 5 times, and you can see wher 9 is in relation. Bonny Doon is roughly halfway between Ben Lomond and [on the coast] Davenport...as the crow flies, anyway.

Thank you for a wonderful evening! Sorry I pooped out so early.
