Red Tinged Sky

This afternoon the sky has been tinged with red.

California wild fires, red sky, smoky sky, red tinged cloudsHere was the sky as I was leaving this afternoon for a quick trip to drop off books at the library. You can see the red in the clouds. Not something that is good to see at 2:00 in the afternoon.

There are some big wildfires in the hills between the Central Valley and the coast of California. During the big thunderstorms over the weekend many fires were started by lighting strikes.

I had smelt some smoke last night when taking a late walk, but it really intensified throughout today.

I hope that the fires are contained as I have friends near Patterson that may have to evacuate if they aren’t.

Along with temperatures well above 100, it was not a very nice day. I hope that it cools down soon as rolling blackouts are forecast because of the high power demand.
