Smoke But No Mirror’s

The wild fires burning out of control on the mainland of British Columbia are causing havoc all around! The wind is blowing the smoke all the way over to Vancouver Island and settling in our Valley.  Major weather advisories about the heat (going to be over 100 f. today) and the smoke today, and there seems to be no end in sight! I’m not looking forward to it as we have no conditioning!

The smoke does have a wonderful quality…making for awesome sunsets!

  2. You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be really one thing that I believe I’d by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward in your subsequent submit, I will try to get the grasp of it!

    1. Natures beauty in destruction, fire cleans the slate for new growth, but very ugly when humans get in it’s way. Sad but true. Our valley seems to suck the smoke & fog and hot weather in from miles around, thankfully we haven’t had any major happenings! Bad enough we live in a Tsunami zone! I guess that’s what we get for living in such a beautiful part of Canada! Where are you situated?? Thanks for stopping by!


  3. Wow, fantastic blog format! How lengthy have you ever been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The entire look of your website is magnificent, as smartly as the content!


  4. Amazing photos you captured T with the sun trying to get through the smoke. I do hope you stay safe. Word from Kaslo says they have them burning in that area too, it’s such a worry. Down south in Spain and in S.E France the same thing, we’re OK so far. Fingers crossed for you.

    1. I heard about the fires in France, not near you I hope? We’re far enough away from the fires (it would have to jump the Georgia Straight) but we’d be screwed if a fire started here, only 1 main hwy out, 1 dirt road out and the water! Scary! 🙂


  5. Beautiful pics but I hate the reason why. I was not aware the pine had a beetle too, I know only about our nasty cottonwood beetles. Do pine beetles have huge pinchers too?

    1. yes, the only good thing about the fires, getting rid of the pine beetle! I missed the moon rising, but later it seemed pretty clear! I’ll have to watch for it tonight but the mountains surround us and it will be difficult to see it pop up! 🙂


Live,Love,Laugh, and eat lots of icecream!
