The fires have inflicted a lot of havoc on the Rogue Valley and many other places throughout the country. Businesses, people and the environment have really taken a hit. As you can see here, the smoke manipulates the coloring of the sky and creates a cynosural luminance at times, and makes for some pretty coloring, but we'll take clear skies over smokey any day. My wife and I now live in Southern Oregon, but we were born and raised in Portland. My whole family is from Medford, so I've been coming here my whole life and it's amazing how the community here has come together to support each other and the firefighters. Hang in there everyone, blue skies are coming!
