/It was seriously horrible for a while

Below is a video of my south San Jose neighborhood on September 9th. Creepy AF. I've lived in the south bay all my life gong back before cars had smog equipment and that was far and away the worst air quality day. Two massive fires on the mountains that make silicon valley.

Here's a pic from 09SEP about 1pm I took from inside my truck while driving around in Cupertino near where I live. Certainly was creepy AF for several days, not including the weeks of sub-standard air quality overall.

I'm guessing you took that pic with a cell phone. Most cell phones, including iphones, couldn't capture the orange hue in the sky. Automatic filtering would make the sky look more blue. My cheap android phone wasn't even close. The drone camera used in the video had no automatic filters, so the orange really came through.

It's probably good most phones couldn't capture it because social media would've got overrun with orange sky pictures. The whole bay area was orange.

Here in Auckland it gets as low as 1'C, and as high as 35!

And yesterday we were hit by a tsunami well over 1CM high after the Earthquake near Hawaii. The whole east coast of northland evacuated for that one (true story).

A few years back we had a tornado, and one entire person died. I mean, we haven't had any tornados since, but they're sneaky devils.

My parents LOVED New Zealand and their one minor complaint had nothing to do with the weather:

They said the roads were too narrow.

Luckily they never ran across any of the roving Sumatran rat-monkeys.

Hahahahaha.  I see what you did there.
