1. We haven't seen the sun here for weeks. Wildfires

have totally obscured the stars, "sunlight" such as it is is this weird tan/orange/dirty pink color. Moon looks gunky. It's depressing.

3. can't imagine what that's like

we've had some slightly smoky skies that had to travel a long way to get here. Not comparable at all to what you must be seeing. It's fascinatingly frightening

Oregon has a surreal tint to it’s late afternoon sunshine the past couple days. Can’t see it but there’s definitely smoke in the atmosphere.

We experienced what you describe with the catastrophic Hollywood and Archie Fires in the west side Cascades last September. The whole southern coast was smoked in for almost two weeks — the first time we’d seen that in the 32 years we had lived here.

6. Where are you?

Here in the Denver area, the air quality is terrible.

2. Pierre Charles L'Enfant should have laid out the DC streets ...

so that the sun would set straight down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol on the summer solstice.

10. Beautiful. Please hear me out,

I understand that so much of our country is going through with our climate change. All of it is horrible.

I appreciate this picture of a picture that was taken. We have so much messiness and danger and bad shit -- I think this picture is just wonderful.

I love that our elected Raps take the time to document beauty.
