As I was leaving for work this morning, it felt different outside. The sky was hazy and my eyes instantly started to burn after walking out of my front door. While I was driving to work, I noticed that pretty much everything looked dull and I couldn't see the mountains to the west.

Smoke was in the air again. Where did it come from? According to FIRMS, there are four wildfires in the state of Colorado that are currently burning with a burn area larger than 1,000 acres. This could be the cause of the smoke in Northern Colorado and on the Front Range, but it seems highly unlikely.
