There are over a thousand forest fires currently burning in the US. Even on this farthest-East point in the US, as the winds have shifted we are seeing smog that obscures the sun and encases everything in an eery pink/orange cast. You can see in the photo of the trees on the other side of the pond that it looks like there is fog, but it's all smog.
On a more whimsical note, there has been a soccer ball stuck spinning round and round in the water flow at the base of this weir for the last month or so. Pretty impressive that it hasn't found its way out yet, even with some near flooding a week ago.
Unrelated but same evening: some moody photos from one of our back windows.
