For those lucky enough to have clear skies this evening, the sunset could be spectacular.

Re: Notice A Dirty Rain in VD Today?

I was out walking this morning but didn't notice anything until an hour ago after I had returned home and wondered wtf was going on. Then I searched and found this thread.

Keeping all the windows closed and am grateful for my air purifiers.

Re: Notice A Dirty Rain in VD Today?

I noticed the orange sky as soon as I pulled back the curtains this morning. For a moment thought it was a sunny day, but then I noticed the overcast.

Looking out now I can see our cars have a nice orange coating. Not been raining here so it's staying in place for now.

It's not a new phenomenon, by any stretch of the imagination; I recall one ski leading slot in Flaine late in the season probably 20 years ago, where it was snowing on and off throughout the sandstorm process, so went from making fresh white tracks in the orange snow to making fresh orange tracks on the new white snow. Quite surreal.

Re: Notice A Dirty Rain in VD Today?

I just put the yellow lenses in my cycling glasses and will go for a ride. Thinking of whether to take some mushrooms also to make this even more psychedelic.

Re: Notice A Dirty Rain in VD Today?

So, I inquired - and back home there would be a smog allarm issued for situations like these.. I guess the fine sand might not be so bad?
