Cool satellite photo

2003-10-27 23:35:09.535299+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

You probably know that Southern California is on fire right now, huge wildfires, at least a thousand homes destroyed, assorted deaths. This is fire season, it's that time of year when we get a late summer as the winds reverse and blow hot air from the interior desert back to the coast. Here's a photo that's the most dramatic demonstration of that I've ever seen.

Got your marshmellows ready? Can you swim?

That's hundreds of miles south. No worries up here.

That's a great picture. It clearly shows the change of winds.
