The worst, for Seattle, was the smoke, for days on end, from wildfires in British Columbia and Eastern Washington. Not to mention the excessive heat.
Summer ends when Fall begins in Seattle today, Friday, September 22nd at 1:02 PM! Bye Bye Summer!
Ship spotting through smoky skies ...
|Smoke over the Marina|
(and everywhere else too!)
|Back to some clean air, September 18th|
NOAA's Bell M Shimada
near Pier 91
Skies were smoky for days ...
|Smoke sure created some unusual sunsets.|
|Looking out over the Marina|
|Smoke so thick it made the sun look like the moon at sunset.|
Snapped right as the sun dropped behind the Olympic Mountains.
August 4th 8:25 PM
|Some days weren't so bad!|
|Impressed with the clouds!|
|We liked this one!|
We had a nice break from smoke around this time.
|In the distance ... rainfall at sunset.|
It wasn't all bad ...
|Had to wonder what this was about.|
Circling over Puget Sound on Sunday, August 20th.
Our guess: Filming for a movie.
|Last visit to Volunteer Park Dahlia Garden|
The hot, dry summer had the garden in decline.
But there were still a few beauties!
|All's well that ends well? :-)|
