The Smoke Clears

After more than a week of foul air, the southwest "Delta Breeze" has finally strengthened sufficiently to push the smoke out of the Valley. Air quality is supposed to be "good" tomorrow. There's still some haze, but I can no longer taste the smoke when I'm outside. And the breeze has kept it a bit cooler than usual, which isn't surprising. When we have a good strong breeze, it's foggy in San Francisco and, given that we're coming up on the 4th of July, fog should be expected. In the 28 years that we lived in the Bay Area, it was foggy on the 4th, oh, about 24 of those years.

The fires are still burning, but the smoke is being blown elsewhere.
