Northern skies

I've been receiving apocalyptic messages from my friends in the Bay Area and some very startling photographs today. The sun never came up this morning and it looks like Ragnarok has arrived with all the fire smoke. Hang in there, guys!

Bob - Berkeley

"The fires in Mendocino are leaving a layer of smoke about 3,000 feet above sea level and the fog has not yet dissipated.   All the street lights are still on, and it still seems like nighttime.  Armageddon is upon us.  It is very eerie."


Jessica B. - Berkeley 9:30 a.m., practically completely dark.

It is really bizarre, like a 4 hour eclipse of the sun. This picture was at 10:45am  It’s even darker now at 12:45pm.  The patio looks like at night. 

Warren - San Mateo

Looking toward Castro Street on Nineteenth at ten am. Looking up nineteenth toward the Haight at the same time. Isak

Dave - Burlingame

Kerry - Little Hollywood

Bob Schmid - Oregon

Apocalyptic, it's like everything is hitting us at the same time, fire, plague, Donald Fucking Trump, riots in the streets, what's next, earthquakes, famine?

My friends in Humboldt County report the same, as do friends in Seattle. The whole of Cali is covered in haze and ash.

I have never seen a sky like that in my life. It was so dark too. It started out orange, then went to yellow, and then to brown, but so dark. It was like either a partial eclipse of the sun, or the end of the planet. It was weird and a bit scary. Dark, dark, not morning, that's for sure.Not afternoon, not like anything I have ever seen.
