Notice the haze in the above picture. I just took this about 2 minutes ago out my front door. I’m sure you’re thinking that it’s summer and hot. Of course you have haze. Well, you’d be wrong. It’s smoke from brush fires that we have burning in the state. I thought I left all this nonsense behind when we moved from California. I do not like smoke and wildfires. I know. Who does? But I really hate it. According to the news, this fire could burn for weeks before they’re able to put it out and it’s so large that it has created it’s own weather system complete with lightening strikes which is what started the fire in the first place. How crazy is that?
