Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like


Red sun

This is what the sun was up to outside my window last night. I take it as a bad sign.

Actually, there’s an atmospheric explanation for it that makes perfect sense (smoke from a fire about seventy miles to the south drifting into our area), but I prefer to imagine that the sky gods are angry and are about to strike with dreadful wrath.

    Lucky it isn’t a bad moon rising … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6iRNVwslM4

    We had similar in the PNW earlier this summer when we were living there, from the fires in Canada. It casts an odd slant on things, for sure. Are you down near the Sierra Nevadas now, in your recent move? I spent a couple days in the town of Lone Pine when I climbed Mt. Whitney, in 2000. Would love to go back.

      I can see why early humans were freaked out by eclipses now…

      We’re in the heart of Gold Country here. I’ve never been down to the Whitney area, but I’ve been to the eastern slope of the SN’s, near Mono Lake. Gorgeous!

    They are. It’s called El Niño. Batten down the hatches.

    70 miles? Isn’t that kind of close? But, hey, great photo!

      A little close for comfort, fer sher. We ain’t worried yet, though. Went to SF today, where the air was cool and clear.
