This photo was taken last night about 7 pm. It was, I think, the only time all day that the sun was visible at all through the smoke. This smoke is being blown down the coast from up near Mendocino County, a couple hours drive away on the freeway.
The latest reports are over 1000 fires burning in the state. Add the threat of dry lighting strikes again this weekend, and we are looking for a chance of a dark, sunless summer for a while. Here's a map with many of the major fires pinned.
