This week is a bit of a weird one.
We’ve got unusually intense heat here in Seattle and given that 75% of the Puget Sound population doesn’t have air conditioners (including us), it’s proving to be quite interesting.
Even Canada is having issues with the heat. They’ve got seriously huge forest fires sending smoke hundreds of miles down the coast. Seattle seems to be bathing in it. One awesome bi-product of the smoke is amazing sunrises and sunsets.
This morning I got a few shots of the sun trying to peer through the smoke.
And another interesting thing this week is Seafair. Every year Seattle brings in the Blue Angels to show off their stuff. Today, I was brought to an invite only helipad Blue Angels party. We got to watch as the F-18’s practiced flying over and sometimes through the city.
Good times! (more…)
