Dense smoke

The northern Nevada area is socked in with smoke from the Rim Fire at Yosemite.  See the link below for coverage and a dramatization of the way the smoke is moving across the west, not only from this fire, but others as well.

Wildfire near Yosemite surges, prompts evacuations

This is the view looking south from our front door. Normally we can see the foothills. I can’t even see to the end of the road.

 

Obviously, this is not good, health-wise. Our throats are raw, our eyes are burning, and we are sneezing and coughing.  I can’t close the windows because we rely on a swamp cooler to cool the house.

Still,  the photographer in me had to take advantage of the diffused light.

I will now return to my sneezing and coughing.
