Hazy Shades of Gray

Hot weather with over a month of little or no rain has made British Columbia tinder dry. Last week there were over four hundred separate fires reported in the province.

While the majority were set by nature in the form of lightening, too many were set by people. Either way, it is sad to see such devastation. Two fires were started by dry lightening near Powell Lake. For three days, we started and ended the day with fiery solar displays.

But the middle of the day gave us mostly a hazy shade of gray with air that was hard to breathe. I can only imagine what it must be like in the interior where the majority of the blazes are raging still.

Here's an interesting website that displays the most "notable" fires of the season in BC. -- Margy
