This last week, thanks to wildfires east and north and south of town, we have a haze of smoke ringing the horizon. The haze creates an eerie scene (above). Being asthmatic and a cyclist it’s been a drag. My daily commute has been punctuated by wheeziness thanks to the particulate matter in the air. Yet, darn it. There’s always a bright side. No, not a silver lining. But, instead a pink hue. At sunrise and sunset that’s made for some lovely light effects.
