This image does not do it justice. The sky where I am (Silly Con Valley) is a pumpkin orange colour. This is at 12:50 just after High Noon. Notice that the oncoming traffic have their lights on. It is DARK at high noon. The photocell controlled street lights are on.
I note in passing that in a comment here:
P.G. seems to have it worse with a rosy red sky.
8:30am here in Northern California, Sky is a deep blood red and it is nearly as dark as night. A”Snow” of ash is fallowing from the sky. The power has been off for 30 hours, so generator is roaring away destroying our tranquility. At least I have 2 Airwashers humming away making the air quality in my kitchen a bit more breathable while I surf the web. Hope the rest of you are enjoying your morning…pg
Welcome to Kalifornia….
So any guesses as to the power situation with Dead Calm wind and near zero solar at high noon?… Yeah, glad I got the generator service done in time…
