SMOKY SUNRISE

You've undoubtedly seen the news that the sky over the Pacific Northwest and California in the United States has been smoky. I live in Western Oregon between the Cascade Mountains to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. I can certainly attest to the fact that the sky has seemed smoky. Yes, it has--for days. Perhaps weeks. To get a visual glimpse of the forest and range fires that produce the smoke, computer search for "Oregon Fires". Or just follow this link: https://www.google.com/search?q=oregon+fires+map&rlz=1C1ASVC_en&oq=oregon&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j46i275i433i512j35i39j0i131i433i512l2j69i60l3.1536j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 On a map of the U.S., you'll see fires crowding the landscape all across the Northwest. Not been fun. Hoping for better late-summer days.
