Photos: Smoky sun

Photo by Jan Hansen

Really - all Jan's photo needs is a witch on a broomstick. I thought about saving it for Halloween - you may see it again.

No need to tell you that the air is dangerous to breath. The Clean Air agency says the the part you see isn't as bad as the part you can't see.

Our bodies will filter out the large particles. It's the fine, almost invisible particles in the air that get into the lungs and impair breathing.

Not a good time to jog or ride a bike or go for a run. Ok to stay quietly inside.

Most vulnerable are babies, older people, asthmatics, anyone with respiratory issues.

Bruce's photo looks even more ominous. You can barely see the sun in his photo, through the black clouds and brown air.

It's bad here, but it's not a flood, or a hurricane, or a forest fire.
