Smokey days

It’s a firy summer in BC. Hwys 97 and 20 are no drive zones, 10s of 1000s have been evacuated from the Cariboo-Chilcotin. At times the smoke fills also the valleys of SE BC, e.g. the Kootenays. It’s not that the Purcells across the lake were levelled over night, the smoke blots them out. At ground level the viewing distance can be below 3 km. However, two summer ago with the fires in WA State things were worse (fly ash). So, we stay mostly in doors as is recommended for elder citizens :-/
