Insane smoke haze from serious wild fires – mostly from Whistler fire – hanging over Our Town for most of this week – somewhat dissipated now, but at first (before we knew what it was) it felt like the End was Nigh. So smoky/hazy you could hardly see, ash falling from the sky and RED sun!! Yow! Was like that for 3 days. And by the number of fires and horrendously dry conditions for over a month, probably won’t be the last time this summer.
