I woke up this morning and the sky was campfire grey.
The smoke was thick enough that you could taste it on your tongue.
"Is there a forest fire somewhere around Edmonton?", Greg asked.
I immediately hit the local news site and discovered that no, it wasn't near us.
It was from the fires in BC. The RAGING fires in BC.
I know it may be my BC-born heart sinking, but that poor province has been riddled with fires for the last ten years. Those poor people. And so many of them are elderly in the interior. I hope their health doesn't suffer too much.
Not that having your family evacuated and your house burnt to the ground is much better.
Consider this post my shout out to British Columbians.
Stay thirsty, my friends.
