Missing In The Smoke

Am I missing?
I could be.
It wouldn't be hard.
The smoke from the wildfires is so thick, we have had visibility as low as 1 km. That is 5/8 mile.
Can't see the hills around us most of the day.
No planes in or out and the bombers weren't allowed to fly for parts of the day.
The air quality has been as high as 49/10.
That's right 49/10.
No outdoor activities.
Unless you go to Sun Peaks where the air quality is great.
If you have to work outdoors, you wear a face mask and you are inside after x minutes outdoors.
No mail service as the post people can't be outside.
Many people (me included) have had reactions to the smoke; eyes and nose running, throat sore and dry, and some shortness of breath when outside.
So thanks to lightening strikes, badly done back fires, arsonists, and carelessness, BC has
Wildfires currently burning
Wildfires since April 1, 2017
Hectares burned since April 1, 2017
I've had my bottle of water so back to bed. It will be a day off when I get up.
One full of smoke so more housework will be done.
Looking forward to the day there is no more smoke.
Until the next time...........................
