Have you southern BCers noticed the Smog in the Fraser Valley for the last several days? This place looks like Los Angeles, Mexico City and Seoul.

Edited to add: BC Air Quality

I don't suppose it could have something to do with the heartlands being on fire, could it? I'm watching one of the fires burning on the side of a mountain a couple of miles from my house, and the smoke goes a long ways from just one of these fires (and a relatively small one at that). I'd imagine that 300 of them could be affecting air quality in the Fraser Valley if the wind is blowing the right (wrong?) way.

We thought of that, but we don't smell smoke.

I don't think you'd smell much at that point. The smoke would be too dispersed. I can only smell smoke when the wind is blowing it right at my house (I don't particularly like those times, by the way, and not just because of the smell). For the most part, the smokey haze hangs pretty high up. I remember a few years back, there was a huge forest fire in Russia that resulted in a noticeable haze here in Northern BC.

I remember that.
