Smoke before summer

Sun blotted out by smoke

Smoking Friday the 13th

Normally this happens in September, not June!

The Indians Fire, which has been burning in the Los Padres National Forest in Monterey for over a week, blotted out the Sun on Friday the 13th. It caused the street lights to come on in mid-day. Ashes rained down on the south side of the city like a light snow that evening. Just the day before I had washed my car.

What an early fire season. It is not yet even summer.
