Friday, September 25, 2009 Thick Air

For the record on this date the view from high up on Mulholland Drive, above Hollywood ambient temperature, 97 Fahrenheit, humidity near zero, light Santa Ana winds blowing the grit in off the Mojave, and the smoke from all the fires so dust, smoke, photochemical smog, all trapped by an inversion layer. Just another day in paradise. That's downtown Los Angeles in the distance.
