I got a good view of the persistent fires this afternoon from the plane. Fortunately for city residents, the smoke blew toward the east today, as the high pressure system moved across the country allowing sea breezes to clear things up a bit. Smoke levels seem more like they were on Monday, and don't seem so bad, after yesterday's darkness. We even opened our windows at home.
Schools and colleges are cancelled for the rest of the week due to the poor air quality.
