Smoke-filled valleys of eastern Arizona
We flew over eastern Arizona on Sunday, on a commercial flight from Tucson to Chicago. The valleys were filled with thick white smoke that reminded us of coastal fog in California.
We arrived at the State Geologists meeting in Dubuque last night and immediately heard from our colleagues in New Mexico just how bad affects of the smoke from multiple Arizona fires has been on visibility and breathing.
