So, here we go again. I can't say that the air is full of smoke this morning but it is very, very noticeable and unpleasant.
The border of California and Oregon seems to be a real mess. That smoke is probably blowing into Salt Lake City and Boise. Fires in southern B.C. but this morning smoke is from a relatively small local fire.
Water vapor from that ocean eruption, @Dirtmechanic ?? Sheesh now we have to think of water in the stratosphere, ocean, glaciers, lakes, streams, raindrops ...?
""It was Saturday, June 4th," says Jim, "a pretty morning but cool, and I and two other boys were to carry water for a log-rolling. We had all been running barefoot for weeks and had no shoes on that Saturday. There was a good crowd at the log rolling and us boys were kept busy with water pails, and having a good time watching the men work. Along about nine o'clock it clouded up with a cold wind blowing and about eleven o'clock it began snowing, not a flurry but a real winter snow storm. It kept right up and at one o'clock it was snowing harder than ever, and laying, too. By four o'clock in the afternoon there was a good two inches of snow on the ground and us boys in our bare feet. At first everybody took the snow storm as a good joke, threw snow balls and said they reckoned likely we'd have good sledding on the Fourth of July. But by the middle of the afternoon, when the snow kept on coming steady as a December fall, you could see a change coming over the men. A sort of fear seemed to settle down, even the cattle appeared to feel it. The crows had been circling over the woods, whole droves of 'em, cawing and raising a row, excited, like they act when a big storm's coming. The oxen were uneasy, seemed to want to get to the barn, some of them bellowed and pawed and were unruly. Work on the log rolling quit about three o'clock and everyone went home, worried, wondering what was going to happen. It just seemed as if calamity was in the air."

Had the AC on for now 3 days bc of the high 80's/low 90's and 70%+ humidity.
Supposed to rain this evening through overnight and then...79 for a high tomorrow.
I don't see any REAL Global Warming or terrible Climate Change.
I DO see the result of the Tonga Volcano.
