    been real weird here. early last week, with humidity well over 100.

    sat. was pretty hot, started off sunny. then smoke from a forest fire in quebec, about 6 hours away, drifted in and blanketed the city. you couldn't smell it as smoke, but the sun was basically an orange sphere in the sky, you could look right at it(i know youre not supposed to) haze at ground level made it seem like dusk at mid afternoon.

    today is chilly enough for a jacket.

    the only constant is no rain. starting to get those yellow tire marks on some props.
