The sun sets in the smoke
Photo by Frank Kleyn

It was a beautiful morning and early afternoon, a bright sunny day. Lee was out walking and found signs of fall - a tree with leaves already turning.

Look at the beautiful blue sky. Lee took the photo around 11:15am Thursday morning.

I had my doors and windows open and was enjoying the nice breeze. I don't remember what time it was - sometime in the late afternoon. Suddenly there was a foul odor blowing in the front door - which means the wind was from the south.

I rushed to close all the doors and windows. By sunset, when Frank took the photo out over the Shoreline Sea, the smoke was obvious.

On the news, I heard of a big new fire in Shasta County, California. The Delta fire has burnt 15,000 acres in 24 hours and is not contained.

It's still fire season. Hoping for rain for California.
