About you, how is it in the neck of your woods?

It's not as bad here in San Diego County as the rest of California. The sky here is only the slightest hint of dirty brown, not quite the apocalyptic red skies of Northern California. Air quality as reported by Wunderground is "Very Unhealthy":

VERY UNHEALTHY

Active people of all ages who exercise or work vigorously outdoors are at increased risk.
AQI: 245
DOMINANT POLLUTANT: O3

And the wind is blowing from the south to the north, that doesn't help.
When they say that California looks like Apocalypse, I believe them, plus I saw photographs on the network weather news channel, and even some YouTube weather network videos, with flames and plumes of smoke. Everything is red orange foggy fuzzy invisible ...

It's so bad that @ night you cannot see the stars in the sky.
The Moon? Forget it, even the planes aren't flying.

Here in Seattle, today, we currently have the 2nd worst air quality in the world.

#1 goes to our neighbors to the south in Portland.

Outside my house right now, the smoke is like a fog in the trees.

When I went out to walk my dog, I came back with runny nose and eyes, smelling like BBQ.
