|8/20/18 The smoky sun at 7:20 p.m.|
The air quality in the Puget Sound region has now cranked up to the “very unhealthy” and “hazardous” level. Coming home yesterday from a short visit to the Twin Cities, which were also hazy from Canadian wildfire smoke over the weekend, I was dismayed to see the thick cover of bad air as we descended into Sea-Tac.
Last night around 7:20 p.m., still an hour from sunset, the sun was a beautiful/terrible orange ball in the brownish-gray fog. In the 10 minutes I took to sketch this, the sun kept fading and then literally disappeared behind the smoke screen surrounding us.
