the smoke in palm springs from banning “silver fire” – august 7 2013

smoke from banning california's "silver fire" rolls into palm springs

when i opened my front door just moments ago to snap the top image, at 4:15pm pdt,  i was hit with a wall of “fire aroma” and smoke actually started rolling into my apartment. this fire is probably 30-35 miles to the west of here, but the winds are blowing from the los angeles side of the banning / beaumont pass eastward, dumping all the smoke from today’s “silver wildfire” just south of banning california right here in the west-end of the coachella valley. the picture of the sun was taken at about 5:15pm pdt when the fire reached ~2500 acres. yoiks and gadzooks
