Here is a Flickr photo of the sunrise through the smoke.
OK, its getting a bit surreal out here. Smoke still hangs in the air just about any direction you look (you get a good view from my roof). Fires are burning to the North, South and East of us. It turns the light a sort of purple color when the sun shines through these giant smoke clouds, and if one is close enough it rains ash onto everything. I feel for all the people out in the middle of the fires, as we are safely far away in the city. From the photos and news footage, it looks hellish.
Here is a map of current fires. And a list with more description.
