Salt Lake City, Utah – August 17, 2015
There is a haze over our city, and it’s not even our fault.
We’re getting smoke from the wildfires in northern California right now. It leaves the city looking like a we’re in the middle of a typical winter inversion. And you can smell it – it’s like I’m living next to a perpetual campfire.
The good news – a cold front is heading our way and the winds are going to change. They are going to change from the west to the north west.
The bad news – there are a bunch of wild fires in Oregon and Washington state, so we’re still going to be getting smoke.
On the bright side – smoky air makes for amazing sunrises and sunsets. Today’s sunrise:
I’ll try to get some more sunrise/sunset pictures. If I do, you’ll see them here.
