It's not a good thing - that hills and houses are burning here in California.
We are all a bit on edge, even if it's not hitting our neighborhoods.
The smoke darkens the sky, making almost apocalyptic displays at times.
And of course, the sunsets are a lot more vivid as well.
Here are a few snaps from the back of my boat this evening.
Evan crosses in front on the canopy-topped Lucia.
Jonah heads out towards the canals.
