The photos of the orange sky, smoke dense enough that you could look at the sun directly as we do the moon at night, photos that I doubled-checked by asking if they were taking last night or this morning?! A silence fills the air, birds are not singing, wild animals are coming into the neighborhoods in search of food, water, shade, refuge...
