Seen from my back patio, just before 7 AM, this morning. We have some monsoonal cloud cover competing with the smoke from the "Mountain Fire". Yes, in California we name our wildfires, just to keep them straight. The fire is about 50 miles away from Murrieta, and it's wrecking havoc with the air quality all over SoCal. In the Idyllwild area where the fire is raging, most people have been evacuated. Idyllwild is just up the hill from Palm Springs.
