Hazy / by Karie Luidens


The ongoing thunderstorms across the state are a mixed blessing. They’ve brought fresh moisture in a year of drought, but also sparked forest fires with lightning strikes. I might not have noticed the hint of smoke in the city’s atmosphere if my partner hadn’t pointed it out to me, but now that I see it I can’t not see it. Even the clearest blue skies look a little hazy these days.
