Smoky days

Two small wildfires in the area are making today more than a little hazy. Throats are dry, eyes are red, and overall it's just one of those days where you'd rather be at home.

 

So is there an upside? Always!

It means we had nice diffused colors this morning at dawn, which made a stop at Watson lake a pure joy:

 

Sure, I had to squint through tears while standing out there, but it sure was beautiful. :)

I definitely know about the dry eyes (and scratchy throat) living where I live. Sorry it's going on there, cause it ain't fun, but yes, the lake pictures are GORGEOUS.

Melissa - I can only imagine.

It's kind of funny here because where I live is a plain and doesn't hold onto the smoke. As I drive into work I can see the smoke sitting over the city. About halfway there it starts smelling like a campfire.

I'm just happy I don't have to sleep with the smoke.

And I'm glad you dug the pics. :)
