Wednesday: Continued haze; warmer temps

Dave and Janice Schurman also managed to photograph the haze later in the day on Tuesday:

“We drove to my parents’ house Tuesday evening,” wrote Dave Schurman, “and the smoke from the Canadian fires gave the sun such a weird orange color. We had to get some pictures of it. This one Janice managed to capture while I was driving.” (Photo: Janice Schurman)
“This one I snapped when we were in my parents’ driveway,” continued Dave Schurman. “You know I like my pics to make a point…lol.” (Photo: Dave Schurman)
