On a more serious note, the drought in the Midwest and west is devastating.
It looks like the corn crop is lost and the soy beans aren't looking much better.
Farmers and ranchers are selling their breeding stock due to lack of forage.
Canada has over 500 forest fires raging and only half are anywhere near contained.
Our western states are on fire as well. We live in a world of smoke right now.
I've been on this earth for a long time but this is as bad as I've ever seen.
As you drink your morning coffee, say a prayer for rain please.

Woke up to a warm 70 and we’re looking at the mid 90’s today. Still very smoky but not as bad as yesterday. Air quality is still in the triple digits but way down from the last several days.

The fireball coming up, picture doesn’t capture the intensity of the red. Second pic shows how the smoke is picking up the sun’s rays. Already the blue sky is gone and the red sun is back as more smoke has blown in since I took that pic 20 minutes ago.

Coffee is good...son and daughter-in-law are both back at work and over the covid so a good day in my book. Hopefully it will the last brush with that stuff for my family.
Best of luck to everyone today in their health and in whatever endeavors ya get into as the day progresses.

Coffee and Orios.
Light rain this morning, nothing heavy, just wet the dust.
Loading up to leave for the Blue Grass concert.
