smoky smell

Original post made by neighbor, University South, on May 23, 2008

Is the strong smoky smell in the air from the fire in the Santa Cruz mountains, or is there another fire closer by? I'm finding the smoke incredibly strong all over north Palo Alto!

The smell is quite strong in the downtown area - and yes it is from the Summit fires. I just drove to Redwood City and it's not quite as bad there...when coming back into PA - you can visually see the smoke in the air! It's horrible and I can only imagine those poor people living further south and the people directly impacted from this fire. My heart goes out to them all!
