Vegas Skys of Fire

I walked out of my office building at lunch today and breathed in what http://www.wunderground.com reports as Air Quality: Unhealthy Pollutant: PM2.5. I sure could feel it in my lungs too. You can smell the fire in the air as well.

I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and all the fires from California have apparently covered our sky in smoke. The sun is nearly blacked out, and I can actually stare at it and my eyes don't hurt. (But I'm not) If I wasn't at work writing this, I would be recording right now.

Tonight, there should be an awesome sunset because of the clouds, so I'm going to try to tape that. As for right now, it looks like I imagine it would, if a meteor hit the earth, and put dust in the atmosphere.

Wow, it sounds so apocalyptic, the the city of angels is burning and is covering sin city with it's smoke and ash.

If it wasn't for real it'd make a great movie.

Or you could accept the fact that this city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

MAYOR
What do you mean, biblical?

RAY
What he means is Old Testament biblical, Mr. Mayor. Real wrath-of-God-type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling!

EGON
Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes! Volcanoes!

WINSTON
The dead rising from the grave!

PETER
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

MAYOR
Enough! I get the point! What if you're wrong?

PETER
If I'm wrong, nothing happens! We go to jail. Peacefully, quietly. We'll enjoy it! But if I'm right, and we can stop this thing; Lenny, you will have saved the lives of millions of registered voters.

Sadly no. It was already Night before I could make it out of my work that day. The day after, the smoke was pretty much cleared out of the valley, and it didn't really seem like there was much of a sunset. More of just a Day, then a Night.
