We are surrounded by fires. Soot falls like snow all day. The sun shines with a fire red filter so thick you can look directly at it without squinting. And the color blue is gone for now.
As I posted yesterday August is marine layer month on Central California’s coast. Took this shot yesterday afternoon. Weather report calls for same cloud formations today. In brief, the blue skies are holes in what is otherwise a mix of thick grey and white clouds.
The Sacramento heat is intense this week. No breeze in the daytime. Hard to breath air. Limited shade. I took a quick shot of a photographer taking five at Land Park.
A patch of blue has been the standard for weather this week over the western end of the Carmel River. Took this shot yesterday–those are brown pelicans flying overhead while the blue sky is out in Carmel Valley where temps are 20-degrees hotter.

Fortunately, the forecast is for a period of rain to start in a few days–we need the winter wetness here in California. The hackberry is used to make cheap furniture and firewood, according to tree experts. IContinue reading “Hackberry Spring”
