A week of smoke from the Camp fire up north--and today's the worst yet. It turns out that air filters don't work all that well on smoke. Mine's on anyway. It's tiring but worse by far for many others. I actually have on a mask indoors!

Yah - we are smoked in. Outdoor activity can kill you, and some vulnerable people, like asthma patients, have died from simply being out in the smoke. We have 3 HEPA filters running full blast and restrict our indoor movement to those rooms with the HEPA filters, and N95 masks are mandatory if we must go outdoors. It has all the same medical problems as chain smoking, but without the high.

As bad as it is for us the SF Bay Area, it is far worse for those in the burn zones.

To answer the theme of this thread: these fires have created their own weather, and it ain't good. The sun has been mostly blocked out and the temp is downright cold for November in the SF Bay.

I think I'd rather have an earthquake. Probably less destruction, and it's over in less than 10 mins without lung damage.

Snow is very early this year; it is snowing since last week, and it does not melt...

Today:

Last week (the snow was more wet so it stuck on tree branches.. lovely sight..)

You are culturally deprived. :D Yellow snow goes hand in hand with the saying "When you gotta go, you gotta go."

Andrew, there's an opinion piece on the smoke in the N.Y. Times that you might find interesting. The author is being flamed for "whining" by some in the comments section because, you know, she still has a house so shut up already. Yes well I think that those living here are well aware of the horror of that fire for the victims. The smoke is unprecedented and is a story as well.

It's the worst kind of snow you can get, especially if you get a snowball made from it thrown at you. Tastes horrible.

A picture of downtown Sacramento (about 15 miles east of me--I'm about 100 miles south of the Camp Fire)--the buildings aren't even visible!

I feel really bad for those living in or near the fires. That sounds like an inane thing to say but is sincere. I think all people in the US with any sensitivity feel really bad for California.

As for us, we are having January in November. As our winters get warmer their boundaries seem to be expanding. We had a blizzard last spring in late April— unheard of.

It's hard to reconcile the west coast being on fire with the east coast buried in snow.
