Canadian Wildfires

12 replies • Last post

Hey all, I'm sure a good chunk of us in the States and Canada are being affected by the wildfires in Quebec and Ontario. There were some crazy pictures of NYC looking like Mars a few weeks ago, and the fires are continuing. Have you been affected by these fires?

Today is the worst day for me. I previously had one day where I had a headache, but today is really bad. The weather has been rainy the past few days, and today it's cloudy with just smoke. It's so bad that visibility around here is 1 statute mile. The smell is like burning garbage. The pic I attached was today at the tire shop. You can see the haze and barely out about 500 feet away. It's terrible out.

The past 2 days have been the hottest measured on record worldwide. Tuesday was the record then it was immediately broken on Wednesday.

Things like these fires you have been experiencing is only going to be more common while the world avoids doing what is required to mitigate global warming, sadly.

That's true. Look to the Northeast to see all the bananas stuff going on out there weather-wise.

A few weeks ago, when the fires in Greece went out of control, during the peak of the tourist season I watched a documentary about how science is researching fires. Because we need new ways, equipment, to fight thenm, A scientist explained it: It's like fire took antibiotics and developed a new level of resistance. When I think about Canada I think of beautiful landscapes with snow, Woods elks and that Monty python song😉. And now its all burning. Just unreal

It was pretty bad. You know its bad when you get a headache from a fire that's over 500 miles away.

I think Alberta declared wildfire season much earlier this year. Some of those fires from last year are still smoldering underground. Up until about a month ago, we had barely any snowfall and counties all over are worried about major drought conditions.

One of the smaller cities in Northern Alberta is being evacuated right now I'm hearing. Years ago when I worked in Ft McMurray in the Oilfield, the camp I was staying at was evacuated. It took us almost 6 hours just to get an hour down the highway. The fire had jumped the road in front of us, behind us. Luckily we were in no real danger at the time but the smoke was so thick you couldn't see more than a couple truck lengths in any direction.

There is some nasty fires already this year. A couple of the bigger cities in northern Alberta have been on the edge of having to evacuate.

Oh man. I wonder how bad it'll get. Definitely not looking forward to that smoke. I know it's 1000x worse for you folks up north too. I can't imagine how thick it gets.
