San Francisco awakens to darkness, as wildfire smoke blankets city in red twilight

San Francisco and the Bay Area woke up under prolonged darkness today, in scenes that resemble Martian landscapes or a nuclear winter. The sky lightened briefly around 9 a.m. in some places, but then continued to get darker again, as atmospheric smoke casts the city in a perpetual twilight of red and orange. Fine ash rains over it all.
