We woke this morning to a hazy sky and the smell of smoke. I was alarmed and went outside to see if there was a fire nearby. It was very windy and we haven’t had any rain for over a week. It wouldn’t take much for a fire to race through the woods that surround our home. I couldn’t see anything, so I went inside and jumped on the internet to see if any news of a fire in my area had been reported.
Turns out the smoky haze and smell was coming from dozens of forest fires in Quebec, Canada: “Winds hamper efforts to battle Quebec fires”.
My heart goes out to all those affected by the fires and hope that they are under control soon.
