Itook the photo this morning, of the iconic Table Mountain. It is well known for its "table cloth", a shroud of mist or cloud. This morning, for the first time in nearly fifty years, I saw the mountain covered in a shroud of smoke. This in itself would seem iconic. OBSERVATION: Wildfires have been rapidly increasing worldwide: the acreage burned, the length of the fire season, fire emissions, and so on. My home is in this photo, somewhere.
