There's massive forest fires (note the plural) going on in Northern Canada, and the smoke has been torturing our lungs for the past month. It got so bad the only highway going up to Yellowknife from the south was closed for many days, and supplies ran short.
The smoke is even visible from the orbiting satellite! Thick thick smoke....
We went fishing on Saturday to escape the smoke in town, but alas, the lake is thickly engulfed, as well. Both Andrew and I were extremely sick on Sunday from the smoke inhalation. We can hardly see land when out on the lake with the smoke reducing visibility to about 20m or so.
|That boat there is about 100m away.|
|This is what the lake and visibility looks like when the smoke wasn't too thick on the water 2 weeks prior.|
