(Whitewater Valley)--Did you notice the sunset Monday night or the odd-looking, orange moon?  That occurred because smoke from the wildfires in the western United States and southern Canada made it all the way to the Whitewater Valley.  The ensuing rain led to the smell of smoke in our area, prompting many local calls to 911 last night.  Smoke in the upper atmosphere can also intensify lightning.
