I donít get it..I didnít see any smoke or feel a thing
I all but had to rip my contacts out it made my eyes so itchy. Rare glasses JuliAn in effect.

Are you working up here? I had a Teams call with a colleague in Fredericksburg and she hadn't even heard of the issue. AQI there was moderate.

on the west coast, we count on having an annual wildfire season, AKA air filled with smoke, checking the hourly PM2.5 forecast, fire up the air filters, etc.  we got a break last year, but we're like 5-for-6 since i got here.  it sucks.  old-time PNW'ers tell me it's a new phenomena... hopefully it's not going to become part of your reality.

Phoenix has had 118 consecutive days without rain.

also on their 19th day in a row of hitting 110*F or more, breaking their previous record of 18 days from 1974.  forecast predicts nothing but 110+ for the next 9 days.  must be a miserable place to live right now (more so than usual...)

phoenix is also out of water.  they city is contemplating investing $5.5 billion (likely to end up costing way more) to build a desalination plant at the top of the gulf of california in mexico, and a pipeline to carry the water to the city.  sheer madness.  at some point we're going to have to admit that we can't, and shouldn't, live in certain places - like the middle of a frikken desert.

Maybe also donít lease what water supply you have to foreign companies to use on your land?  Seems like a bad idea but what do I know.

Speaking of funnel shaped weather events

Tornado on top of a mountain

Possible free band name there

The damage survey along Pikes Peak is complete and the survey team found damage consistent with an EF-1 tornado with estimated winds up to 108 mph.
