    Sorry, I moved my post because I realized that it belonged in the "storming" section. I'm still here (in the North Bay) and will be for a LONG time. :D

    Oh good! :) We don't seem to have to many toy people in the Bay Area. When this whole virus nightmare is over, perhaps we can convince the few Baskers here to have a meet and greet :razz:. Maybe bbq some Gogas! :D

    Gorga BBQ sounds fantastic. I would be all in for a post COVID Bay Area get together!

    What is Gorgo BBQ? Is this short for Gorilla BBQ?

    EXCELLENT reference! The air is extremely hazy in the SF. Just gazing 10 miles into the distance, it looks like a thick blanket of fog, you can't see anything! Thanks for the online interactive map. Hope you are ok? Stay safe everyone!

    I'm okay. My home is out of any danger at the moment, I live on the Sonoma Coast. My work,a food bank, is under warning so that's been stressful. Keeping my fingers crossed that things don't progress much further than they are now.
    Another cool thing about that map is to click on the triangles which are live cams. They're slow to load but cool.

    Apocalyptic Skies! Yes, the huge Oroville and Sierra Nevada fires are generating massive amounts of smoke. Woke up today in near darkness (literally!). Made me think of my intro Geology class, when we discussed massive volcanic eruptions ejecting smoke into the atmosphere and darkening the skys for months, and for really big eruptions, years! Also reminded me of descriptions of nuclear fallout generated winters. It's one thing to read and discuss, but quite another to actually experience atmospheric particulate darkness. Just imagine if this went on long enough, all the plants and animals would die off (no crops, no food!). Eerie experience, especially following 3 consecutive days of unusual "danger level" heat in the Bay Area (SF was well over 100F, which is difficult for us, since most houses in the SF area don't have air conditioning). Had to drive Emma back to the vet this morning for a procedure, and it was DARK! :shock::shock::shock: I noticed that all the birds stopped singing! And everything is covered in an ash layer too.

    *If you snapped a photo while you were out and about today, please share! :)

    Here are my roadside snaps at 11:30 AM, that's morning folks, and close to noon!
    SF snap, looking over Hwy 101, south view

    SF snap looking towards Downtown. The skyscrapers should be viewable in the lower center, but it's too dark and smokey to see anything...

    But WHY is it red and orange?
    (blue which is a shorter wave length along the light spectrum, gets refracted off the particles in the atmosphere, but the longer light spectrum wave lengths to seep in--these would be yellow, orange, red)...

    Wow, that's crazy. Never saw anything like that during the years that we lived in South Bay. Hope all of you are safe and out of danger.

    It is crazy! Everything is covered in ash outside too! Ugh, the deck and stairs will need a serious clean when this passes. They say it's suppose to get worse before it gets better. Some people are weaving about when driving, distracted by the skyline I think. Such a weird thing to experience!

    I felt like I was heading to the graveyard shift when I went to work this morning. I've never seen anything like it. I had similar thoughts of nuclear fallout and volcanic explosions.

    I took advantage of the natural light and took pics of a Black Series Carbonized Stormtrooper

    I tried to post another pic from the series of shots but the board only posts the first image from an IG series.
