It was apparent that the forest fire smoke from the Southern Interior of the Province had spread further Northward into the Skeena Valley. Visibility was cut down to about four to five kilometers, and it seems to be getting worse. It started just a day ago, but already Environment Canada has issue warning on their website. The funny thing about this is, I thought we might have escape the smoke due to the weather systems from off the Pacific Ocean, but with the 30C plus weather we are getting, this is not the case.
On the bright side, this will lower the temperatures during the day by a few degrees. Sadly, it will dull the summer day with smog.
My girlfriend said she is feeling the effects of the smog on her breathing. I can feel it too. Obviously this will end when the rain arrives–rumour has it next weekend when parts of a Pacific hurricane will hit us. Cannot wait for that!
