Smoke at Sunrise

Smoke from the Yorba Linda Fire — Los Angeles, CA

Smoke from the Yorba Linda Fire — Los Angeles, CA

Here's a look at the sunrise from near our home this morning: that's a lot of smoke. The Yorba Linda/Anaheim area fires are about sixty miles east of us, which gives a sense of just how smoky the Los Angeles Basin is this morning. And, when I turn and look to the west, the sky is considerably smoky from the Santa Barbara fires northwest of us. What a mess!
