Warm and breezy, which means PG&E has shut our power off again!

The temperature will come down from 107, to all of 103 today. I'm sure I will notice on the second floor of where I live, with no a/c. I'm melting!

Hot, 104, and now the added bonus of fires. True story: My secretary had his home burn down during the fires a couple of years ago. Yesterday, he's driving to his home, police & fire department have the roads closed -- fires are moving toward his newly built home. *Sigh*

We are having a welcome downpour and release of humidity after an uncomfortable hot week with sporadic lightning storms and flash deluges. Much more comfortable !

Definite hint of early Autumn in the air.

We had to call back a crew this morning that was heading to northern CA.

Smoky - from forest fires in Colorado & In the mountains around here. No structures threatened. At least around here.

Dang! Two water planes and three helicopters within two miles. We expect to be told to evacuate any minute now. Send up good thoughts!

Actually looks like they're getting it contained. Hopefully, we won’t have to get out.

Beautiful day in Southern Maine. Temps in the mid-to-upper 70s with a nice little breeze.

The fires are causing extremely smoky skies today in Napa and the Bay Area

An orange, 'Martian' sky hangs over Napa. Here's why | Local News |  napavalleyregister.com

Continued hot and shitty.  97 today complicated by the smoke that's accumulating from several significant fires in and around the Willamette Valley.  Thank God for air conditioning.

Really bad air here in the SF Bay Area.

ironically the day with the “orange sky” and darkness at noonthat generated all those headlines was the last time it was safe-ish to breath outdoor air.

Hazardous air quality today.  Smoke from multiple forest fires is trapped at ground level.  We're supposed to get some rain this week.  That would be invaluable on multiple fronts.  It's pretty weird in these parts right now.

Unbelievably bad air here in Portland.  And the smoke has been keeping it much cooler than it would otherwise be.  And someone has been arrested for arson in the Southern part of the State where two town burnt down, so the political climate may get even uglier too.

Yes. Ironic for sure. I'd take the orange sky over the toxic air we have now. I hope it blows away soon!

Today it looked better than it was. The AQI was about 150-160, which is moderately bad. We need to cut that by 1/3 at least!

Glorious late Summer day yesterday, sort of like Isle of Wight 1970. More to come today.

Finally got past the smoke week from hell. AQI <10 all day today which is about as low as it will ever get.
