Enough smoke photos. How about bird photos? Anyway, the air’s not clear … but it’s clearer … and that’s a start. Notes for the hours ahead:

PARKS (ETC.) STILL CLOSED: The city announced Monday that it’s continuing the closures through Wednesday.

WYATT’S JEWELERS SALE: As previewed Monday, Wyatt’s Jewelers (central Westwood Village; WSB sponsor) starts a weeklong end-of-summer sale today. Open 10 am-6 pm Tuesdays-Saturdays.

SECOND GEAR SPORTS SALE: The sports-consignment store‘s 7th-anniversary sale (6529 California SW), previewed here, continues until Sunday since they closed for a few days because of the smoke. Open today 10 am-6 pm.

PORT PARK NAME FINALISTS: At noon, watch live (get connection info here) as the top 3 nominations are announced for each Duwamish River park in the Port of Seattle‘s naming contest.

GOVERNOR’S BRIEFING: He’ll talk about wildfires, smoke, and COVID-19 at 2:30 pm; watch here.

BLM SIGNWAVING CANCELED: Since air quality is still a concern, Scott has called off the regular Tuesday 4-6 pm 16th/Holden demonstration.

WS CRIME PREVENTION COUNCIL CANCELED: As mentioned here over the weekend, this month’s West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting – usually the third Tuesday – is off because the Southwest Precinct‘s commander and operations lieutenant are both unavailable.

    “Anyway, the air’s not clear … but it’s clearer …”Is it? Stay safe.

      Visually and experientially (we just walked around the block), it’s clearer. Doesn’t mean it’s cleaner.

      We’re in High Point, about a block from the water towers. If you look straight up, you can actually see a bit of blue sky!

    It was short-lived … now back to what it looked like yesterday. But we have to head out for an appointment so will report back if things are any better along the way!

    Those are lovely bird photos!I wish they’d stop with the faux prognosticating about when this is going away. It gives us this false hope and then the day comes but it’s worse than ever. Just admit you don’t know and that you’re throwing chicken bones around a dirt patch, and stop getting our hopes up.

      OK EMCAT8, it will clear up in three years.  How’s that work for you?
