We are getting the smoke in Sidney, MT. On the way to Billings sited a Casita on Hwy 200. It was headed East.

The effects of the fires have made it to west central Minnesota. Not only is the sky hazy, and the sunrises red, we can even smell the smoke.
Hope they can get the fires under control soon.
Stay safe,

The fires are still raging in northern Sask. It sounds like about 16,000 people have been evacuated and are being housed in several cities in the province and a Forces base in Alberta. Some in emergency shelters, others with family or friends. Some buildings are gone, others are under threat, as is the airport at La Ronge. If it goes there may be a possibility of the fire ripping through the town.


Air quality here has been fairly consistently lousy. Often I could only see about three blocks - but it cleared occasionally to a thick stinky haze.


We had thought to leave for a camping trip in a few days - to the area that has the highways closed! Still discussing options. Under the general circumstances it is a minor aggravation!

We in BC are wishing the folks in Sask all the best Hazel!

Your right we can be doing much worse. Have a couple of friends elsewhere in the province of BC putting together evac kits this AM as they are located very close to a couple of "fires of note" (fire authorities code words for "we have no control").

Air quality in Vancouver has been listed as a significant health hazard as of yesterday afternoon and visibility in Vancouver, BC is down to about 10 blocks today due to the smoke from several wildfires burning in the general region. 3 of which are now classed as "fires of note". Ash is also coming down.

Weatherman claims it to be another hot & sunny day in Vancouver. This is a photo taken from my home this AM - you would normally be looking at the downtown Vancouver office towers, Lions Gate Bridge & the ships in the outer harbour. Looking more like a very foggy October.

Heard on CBC news that they have deployed troops to help fight the fires in Saskatchewan. We had some wicked thunderstorms in and around Winnipeg on Saturday which was a welcome relief to the smoke. They have lifted the air quality advisory for us here for the moment and we can actually see the sun again. Hope mother nature sends some rain your way soon.

I'm not far from Carol here in Bellingham,WA. Extremely dry here too all over the state. The temps are what you'd normally see in August and then only for a week or two. There were three smallish fires started over the 4th of July weekend around our county and the air is still smoky from them. Fortunately all of them were contained or allowed to burn themselves out where that was feasible. The most obvious guess of causes at this time is of course either 1)fireworks or 2)illegal campfires.

YUP never ever have I seen it like this in all the years living here. Lots of people walking around town with face masks on. My house smells like a campfire.

I suspect the smoke you are seeing in Washington may actually be coming at you from us. We have lots of fires burning right now but there are 3 of them growing like crazy in the lower mainland area and the smoke is pretty well covering all of Metro Vancouver and the Southern half of Vancouver Island and as you can see from the NASA photo taken yesterday the smoke is over some of Washington as well.

The second photo is of a fire just north of Whistler that grow last night by 24 times it size and is now 30,000 hectors in size. There are actually two large fires just North of Whistler and the other is equally out of control burning a big number of hectors as well.

Weather forecast is for more of the same - hot and dry.....

Hoping everyone stays safe and the fires die down soon. A good long rain would be helpful eh.
