This is the usual view from home...

This is the view for the last several weeks....

This is from the fires on the west coast. And I don't live in Washington. Or Oregon. Or even California.

Even here in Indiana, we have had reddish sunsets attributed to California wild-fires.

I remember being in Mountain View on business many years ago. Probably the most glorious weather I'd ever experienced - pristine clear skies, moderate temps, low humidity. I remember stepping out of the rental car, looking around, and thinking 'wow, I would LOVE to live here'. (Later I learned about the cost of living there; it shattered my dream.) It breaks my heart to see what's going on with the fires. Paradise lost (literally, for the town of Paradise).
