Smokey city of Raleigh

June 21st, 2011

Interesting conditions in Raleigh as smoke from a coastal wildfire invades the area. A similar thing happened in 2008.

    The “fading” city of Raleigh. Is this a filter for creating smoke effects 😆 On a serious note, today really sucks in terms of air quality. If you have no reason to be outside, stay inside and watch a movie. Thanks for the photos, Matt.

    I remember the one in 08. It was like downtown disappeared for a while. Very cool.

    I have never notice the building in the third picture next to the trees on the right side……did the tornado knock the trees down?

    I’ll be glad with the Dix Campus plans come together. Even when I’m not in Raleigh I often think about being in ‘the park’.
