So yeah, the smoke around here is getting pretty thick. When I ride my bike into work in the mornings, I can look at the sun with only my sunglasses on. The colour is a burnt orange that looks similar to the moon that shines at night. I'm used to a harvest moon only appearing once during the fall. This year, we have had it for about a month so far.
I guess I'm one of the lucky ones though - the smoke doesn't really bother me like I'm sure it does some others. It's just an interesting effect, although I'm sure it's going to be the cause of some colder weather.
