Like many of you in the Bay Area, I woke up wondering why was it so dark for 7am. Not thinking too much of it, I walked with sleepy-eyed to the bathroom to wash my face. Our bathroom window was open a little and that’s I called out for Gavin, asking him “what time is it!?”.
The sun truly never came up, or at least it felt that way. The whole day felt like it was 10pm. The street lights were on all day, cars driving with headlights on and crickets chirping outside. There was a deep orange ad and dark sky, but no smell of smoke. Still, it looked too scary to step outside.
Gavin was working out at a job site in San Bruno and the city shut it all down and sent everyone home because it was too dark to see. Many of the photos shared are bright and orange, this could be because our phones aperture adjusts automatically. But in reality it looked and felt like night time.
Here are some photos that made me say wow!
These photos are eerie and will probably be in our children’s history books one day. Global warming is no joke and it’s with everything happening around us, it’s time to take it seriously. I appreciate all those working endlessly to educate us all about making the right choices and how we can become better and safer consumers. Also, thank you for everyone that reached out to check on our well-being!
For those that need any resources in the Bay Area, reach out to your local YMCA. I have seem first hand they love and support they are doing for their communities, it’s truly inspiring.4
So nice to read about you and Gavin. I didn’t realize that the jobs were shut down, and I work there! Glad you are doing well, I don’t know if Gavin says that I ask after you and tell him to tell you hello from me! I was a very surreal day on Wednesday, I thought about the book of Revelations quite often that day. Sending love and warm thoughts to you Raquel!
