San Joaquin Valley shrouded in Santa Barbara smoke
Driving through the San Joaquin Valley the sky was greyed with smoke from over the coastal range. We stopped at a rest stop near Grapevine to get a cup of coffee. In the parking lot people were walking around with their hands upraised catching the white ash motes falling from the sky, asking, "What is it, what is going on?"
