The photo on the left shows Spokane, Wash. on the late afternoon on August 4, thick with wildfire smoke from the region. The photo on the right shows the view around the same time today, August 13, after a storm cleared out the smoke this morning. I took the photos from the same location on W. Cliff Dr.
