Apolcalyptic!

heh how is that different from the usual state of the LA basin?

BTW the LA times has some amazing photos of what’s going on there right now: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-bigpicturefire,0,5985825.htmlstory

My poor brother is a prof at UCLA, but is currently housebound with two dogs and two small children, none of whom can go outside because the air is so bad!

Indyanna, the air on the ground here was better today. Here’s hoping, anyway.

I wonder if some effect of this smoke will be visible all the way over on the east coast?

We’ll be looking for this thing here in northern Indyanna in the next few days. Meanwhile, I guess there’ll be no requests for “class outside” at Baa Ram U.

It’s still hazy in the mountains, but they’re at least visible as shadows now. (And this is in Colofrakkinrado, not Califrakkinfornia!)

Perhaps the wind that blew through Shane’s neighborhood is making its way eastward. And Susan–nice picnic idea!

You are nowhere near LA! Not even the Valley! Dude, maybe I _should_ be packing up my evacuation kit and wearing a mask. Crazy!
