About 66 forest fires burning in BC now because of the heat wave. This morning the smoke was covering the whole sky, and everything was orange on the ground. Had to turn on lights to make coffee. The dogs were nervous, and birds absent.
The ground is covered with a light dusting of ashes, and the temperature five under normal.
Vancouver, along with towns and cities on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast were blanketed in a haze of ash and smoke as forest fires continue to burn across the province, creating a cloud large enough to be seen from space
