Yes, that’s wildfire smoke you’re seeing, looking west from West Seattle

5:28 PM: From the “in case you wondered too” file – yes, that’s smoke – apparently from a wildfire southwest of here. It’s near Crosby in Kitsap County (here’s a map). The Bear Creek Fire was at 22 acres as of 5 pm – not huge but big enough to be noticeable.

8:20 PM: DNR says it’s made big progress and that it has a line around 90 percent of the fire.

    Oh goodness. I’ve been dreading smoke season after this sunny and dry spring. This will be year five of smoke filled skies in July and August.

    It doesn’t help that our “president” is in complete denial about science, climate change, and what causes wildfires.
