    We've had some very intense sunrises in the last week so it looks like something has been in the air. My 9yo girl said the clouds looked purple today when I picked her up from school.

    Thanks Phinds. The contrast between you gloomy words and that picture of your goofy dog made me laugh and laugh.

    I didn't notice anything where I live (near Seattle). This isn't surprising, as we've had a lot of rain this week, so anything in the air got washed out pretty quickly. @nsaspook, what peak is that in your pictures? It looks like one of the Cascade volcanoes -- maybe Mt. Hood?
