What happened to the epic viz there?

Last Thursday night aug 23rd, Redondo was a beautiful 30 ft below 60 ft deep, and a definite thermocline. Above that, viz was 15 ft, and in the shallows, you could barely see your hands.

Sunrise beach on aug 25th was 25 ft.

Hudson Pt. was terrible on the 20th - 3'.

Of course we were on an ebb, and did not hit slack. Octopus Gardens said they had 30' the week before there, so I'm sure it was operator error

Neah Bay viz was awesome! Anywhere from 15-35+ feet :)

11 dives in 4 days!! And not much smoke out there, I didn't want to come home.
Mushroom Rock was my favorite!!! Excellent viz, Red Goose neck barnacles, and crazy Jellyfish city!

Point Hudson last night... 6-8ft. Kinda like a night dive at 630pm, what with the smoke in the air and goo in the water.

Saturday, running from Pooper Pipeline to Kirbys Wall, called the dive around mofo or course marker at 160ft, as viz was less than 5ft,3ft in sections.

Horrible viz.

Redondo 8/17 was about 30 at depth but lots of Particulate above 30 ft
Dalco Wall Saturday 8/18 was 15'
Sunrise 8/18 was 20ish Also managed to have the best GPO day ever 7 seperate sightings two almost fully exposed the others were buried inside the caves and rocks.
Les Davis sunday was 30-40 foot at depth but only for a very short period, then dropped to 25. Second dive was about 15-20 foot but much of that may have been the silt out from the dive class? Saw one young Wolfy and a gigantic rockfish. Other than that the normal stuff.
