Got Smoke?

I just returned to Whatcom County from the Seattle area. I was surprised to find it all hazy and smoky up here, apparently from a large plume swirling down out of BC, around the northern Olympic Penninsula, then back up this way.

I've never seen this much smoke in this part of the state. I also see that there are enormous plumes of smoke visible by satellite that are blowing down into the midwest.

Wasn't there some cheesy disaster movie about the Earth burning up?

I'm glad that the KLR is configured for post-apocalyptic riding. I wouldn't want any final drive or CANBUS failures while being pursued by flaming zombies.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

There was so much here on San Juan Island that I got out the binoculars and studied the sun for awhile. We were able to pick out 3 sunspots and possibly saw a large flare. Only the second time I ever did that!
