I went to Point Pinole today for work and it was like sticking your head in an actively burning fire pit and deeply inhaling. The smoke was thick, and it burned our eyes and throats. (we didn't stay long).
The winds will no doubt change by Saturday, and perhaps going outside together will be just what we need, and the air will be clear.
But perhaps not. The fires in Sonoma, Napa, Solano, and Mendocino are still burning. The winds are still fast. The humidity low. It is a serious, tragic, and horrible situation.
I'll post an update to the website on Friday to make a call on whether our biking/birding outing is on or off.
Take good care, people.
