There are numerous forest fires in the province of British Columbia west of where I live. With winds and air currents the smoke from those fires has drifted into Alberta. Some days there is quite the haze in the air. I woke up sometime after three this morning coughing and choking due to the smoke in the air. I got a headache from the coughing and do not feel the greatest. I definitely have empathy for anyone that suffers from asthma, it must be hellish.
Obviously the people who are directly affected by the fires have it far worse. I think it will be a relief when the first snowfall hits. A good steady rain for a few days over British Columbia would help immensely.
