I got up early to get the chores done before the Seahawks football game. And I was greeted with an eerie red rising sun. It was much redder than these photos show.
I gave our 16 year old Shetland ewe Wilma breakfast in bed under the spooky sky.
We are down to 2 White Midget toms now (with a Narragansett photobombing).
And Rory enjoyed a couple slices of bread.
The Seahawks did not do well despite getting up early so I could cheer them on. I did manage to get some knitting done, which I like to do with football on, so not a complete loss.
Thanks. It was more amazing in person.
Oh, my! That’s quite the deal!
Unfortunately, we are worse than that. Our smoke is so thick, we can’t even see the sunrise! It’s at the bottom of the scale for air quality. It’s almost noon, and the sun still can’t really shine through the smoke. The Cedar Creek fire is huge – it has burned over 121,000 acres. And it’s only about 32% contained.
I enjoyed your pictures and have looked at them twice. (I’ve given up using my tablet to comment with, so I wait till I get my laptop up.)
That sounds horrible. I hope you get rain soon!
We had the same weird sunrise here, too, and the full moon was quite red last night. I haven’t watched the news in awhile, but our solar system redness is probably from that same Cedar Creek fire.
Probably. Ours is mostly from the human-caused Bolt Creek Fire.
