    Ours were gradual but turned out really bright. I don't know if 3 months of unhealthy to hazardous smoke from forest fires had anything to do with this year's difference or not.

    That was one of the clearer days. It was worse than that for 3 whole months. Now we're getting inundated with smoke from the Camp fire down in Paradise Ca.

    Same here. The AQI sucks here. A friend of my ex likely lost her house up in Paradise. Thankfully they moved to Chico and were just renting their place out. I cannot wait for rain this year. I am so fucking tired of fires and smoke.

    You and me both! I'm tempted to google how to do a rain dance. It's bad enough to try anything to get it to pour down some rain.

    You can try hanging a teru teru bozu upside down to bring on the rain. If you make enough of them, and make 'em big enough, maybe it can break through the el nino effect!

    Our weather can't make up it's mind. Snow, melt, snow, and melt probably starting Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

    I want to get my darn christmas lights up already!
