[pdx] Day of the Wildfire Smoke, Part 3

Near home, in the David Douglas community on the deep eastside, and it's getting on toward sunset. And here's SE Stark Street near 102nd:

The real landscape wasn't at dark as that, but I wanted to show the redness of a a sun that was as much a red rubber ball as the morning's was.

This all calls to mind the old maxim:

Red sky at morning, Sailor take warning,
Red sky at night, Sailor probably lives in Portland
and is about 80 miles away from several major wildfires.

Or something like that.
