blot out the sun
rather odd how it was semi-business as usual even with all these fires. i did go to work that monday (and waited for the the office to officially close due to the fires). i noticed when i went to lunch that everything/everybody was still going thru as if it was a normal day (at least for those not directly affected by the fires). you still had to wait in line at fast food places. people are still jogging/biking/walking their dogs. but if you looked out into the horizon all you see is smoke (dark gray in some directions, more orange-y in others). air quality still kinda sucks even after nearly a week.
made me think that maybe George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, where zombies still flock to the mall, may not be that absurd after all.
