For the past few days the lower mainland has been buried under a huge cloud of smoke blowing up from the out-of-control wildfires burning in Washington, Oregon and California. This has caused the air quality in our province, Vancouver specifically, to be among the worst in the world. Above is a photo of the view from our balcony.
We have all been advised to stay indoors as the air quality health index is at its highest level, 10+ Very High Risk. My heart goes out to everyone currently in the wildfires in the USA, and to those who have lost theirs homes and loved ones. Hoping for autumn rains to begin very soon.
