SEEN FROM WEST SEATTLE: Hope!

(WSB photo)

6:33 PM: For the first time in days, we saw a hint of the downtown skyline from Seacrest while out on late-afternoon errands. Looking to the west, the sun was pink through the smoke/fog – we didn’t photograph that, but Marc Milrod did:

Dare we hope the worst is past? The latest “forecast discussion” says cautiously, “A front moving through the area late Thursday into Friday is expected to help clean out some of the smoke.”

ADDED 8:56 PM: Thomas just sent this photo of what the smoke looks like from above – that’s Mount Rainier barely poking through in the distance:

    Thanks for the hopeful announcement: Keeping my fingers crossed! The FIRST thing I’m going to do when the air clears to healthy levels is to resume my walks at wonderful Lincoln Park!

    I needed to read this 🤞.  As a teacher it has been extremely challenging to have young children inside all day for over a week now in a pandemic while wearing masks.  So hopeful for the smoke to clear!

    This was my picture of the sun this morning as wisps of smoke passed by

    That picture of Rainier barely peaking out of the smoke is mesmerizing; it really gives a sense of scale for what we are dealing with.

    We saw Vashon and Blake last night from Lincoln Park… they were ghostly, but visible.
