Quite a bit of haze, but I have been told it is dust and ash from the summer’s fires kicking up, not new ones. In Santa Cruz, downed power lines have caused a minimum of 4 fires, most put out by locals. Highway 9 is closed due to downed power lines, and I am told there is no power in Big Sur Valley. Welcome to Tuesday. In 24 and 1/2 hours we will have a new president.
