Painterly portraits along the Skyline above Menlo Park on “Orange Wednesday”

by Linda Hubbard on September 10, 2020

Menlo Park resident Robb Most and Atherton resident Doug Klein both headed to the hilltops when the sky turned orange over the Peninsula yesterday afternoon.

Doug’s photo (t0p) was taken at Russian Ridge Open Space mid-afternoon about the same time Robb was taking a photo of Windy Hill.

Yesterday, September 9, was a day to remember. Thanks for the photos. So glad, today is getting back to normal.

These pictures, the orange sky, and the smoke we now breathe, show the present dire situation that we find ourselves in. But worse will be sure to come unless we find ways to strongly counter global warming.

Menlo Park can lead (and can afford to lead). California too. U.S.A. too, in fact, but for that to happen we need – in tech terms – an administration “upgrade.”

Reducing CO2 emissions can start with simple measures like going through our house to replace all incandescent light bulbs with LEDs (90+% electricity savings). LED bulbs are now so cheap that this saves us money within a few years of time. Just my suggestion of where to start…

That day was a day I will never forget! It was dark and very orange all day.
It was very very strange outside, 10:00 in the morning it looked like 10:00
In the evening.
