that pic was taken in the middle of the day. my car is covered with ashes from the nearby brush fires. the ash in the air is so thick it has obscured the sun and lowered visibility. i hope they cancelled the races because the track is actually CLOSER to the fires. here is a pic i took a couple days ago. it shows the layer of ash-dust hovering near the ground. there are 3 big brush fires and theyve been burning for a few days now. some people have already lost their homes. the fires are about 30-40 miles from where i live.
