chalky yellow days and red glazed nights

Fires are burning all over Northern California, and all the smoky air is collecting in Sacramento and surrounding areas.

So, at work and at home, the sky is a chalky, hazy yellow and the sun is red and glazed at morning at night. It's really odd, like living on another planet. Which one, I don't know.

And when I breathe, it's somewhere between "campfire" and "neighbor using fireplace". More towards "campfire", with a taste in my mouth like the ash on burned food.
