Looks like I spoke too soon. The layer of smoke which had been turning the skies eerie and keeping the temperature down, but was far above ground so it didn't affect breathing - yesterday it settled down to ground level, producing a smelly miasma worse than the previous smoke attack. All we can do now, as recommended, is stay inside, so here's another reason to shelter in place. It looks like it will still be here for some days to come. And, it's turning the skies a miserable grey instead of pretty colors, and it's not blocking the heat as well. Fires continue to burn in various scattered places.
