the view from here

Yesterday we finally started to see some effects from the fires. Even at 12 Noon, the light coming into the house cast an orange glow like you would normally see at Sunset. Today was even more interesting. Looking out on the ocean, the line between sky and water had disappeared, making it seem as though there were tankers floating in the air. It was like having some Salvador Dali painting alive outside your window. As evening approached, the orange returned, giving some amazing color, but if you look closely at the last pic, you'll notice how high the sun still is. Tonight I noticed stars in the sky - I guess we will have to wait and see if its a sign of things clearing up.
