I haven’t take any pictures of the red sunset, but some of them are gorgeous, but we all know that just because they’re gorgeous that means somebody someplace is suffering. And as a retired fire firefighter, I have empathy for those guys and gals that are fighting the fires because that’s a horribly difficult and — and job to do under the best circumstances and if you have a heat wave like they had going on there before, it’s just not good.
I’ve got a friend in Portland area, Portland Oregon and he said it was raining today, started to rain and that was knocking down some of the smoke. So that was, that was kind of a blessing. I guess. I’ve got some friends around the San Francisco Bay Area who are affected by the smoke and that kind of stuff but not really affected by the the fires, yet, at least. And some other friends up in in the Pacific Northwest who are at the moment at least safe. Got a grandson who lives in Reno and a lot of smoke, he has a lot of smoke out there, but they have no fires that are close by and I guess because you know, there’s a lot of desert and stuff where he is. So that’s one thing I am thankful for at least.
