They declare a state of emergency over pancake syrup shortage. They'll be fine.

Can we finally have some farking rain please?

Today's "rain" was more like a slight surface moisting. We haven't had a good rain since...  well, last month or so.

I've been inhaling the smoke for over a week now and I'm in Edmonton. You can taste it in the air.

Was supposed to be headed camping in interior BC first week of August. There's still a week or so for them to get shiat under control, but I'm not hopeful. Unless they get a ton of rain in the next week, even if there are no fires actually near where we're staying, the smoke will likely be unbearable anyway

You can smell it in Massachusetts, and yesterday the air was very hazy.

A little haze is one thing. Stinging your eyes is another.

I prefer mine without burning sensations in the valley and without a bunch of firefighters dumping their loads all over her, tyvm.

That's probably from our forest fires in Northern Ontario - down here in the south of the province, we've got haze and the sun looks red filtered through it.

The sky was purple last night. Really funky haze.

I don't think duct tape is going to do much here.

You know, Family Circus is very much akin to forest fires. They're no laughing matter.

Madison, Wisconsin reporting in. The smoke haze is so thick today the street lights came on in front of my office. Last night I *could* see the moon, but it was orange even though it was fully risen for the night.

Couldn't tell how much of the smoke smell last night was the wildfires, neighborhood fire pits, or fireworks celebrating the Bucks. (shrug)

It's a dry heat.

A very dry heat.

Has your weather dramatically changed too?  I'm 4 hours east of you, and the heat wave was cut short by a solid week, and the temperature has barely poked north of 20 since.  And there's so much particulate in the air that condensation was stimulated, meaning we actually go about a micrometer of rain for the first time in a month.

More lightning with little rain in the North Cariboo today.
The aspen, birch and poplar already are losing their leaves.

Clams still got legs though, right?

It's starting to haze up again, but not close to the ground like it was yesterday.

Conditions for me have improved, but still remember the other week where it was ashing again.  Literally flakes of ash falling from the sky amidst all the smoke.  That was something I hadn't seen since the 2018 fires.

Just lost my entire garden, and the roof of my greenhouse to a hail storm :\

So, next spring we need planes to fly all over the western portion of NA, and just seed bomb cannabis all over.  Can you imagine hotboxing the entire continent?
