Forecast Details

This is what I was going to post yesterday, when I discovered I couldn't post. Technologically challenged, that's me.

So I spent most of the day trying to figure out who was burning brush in the extremely windy, dry weather we've been having lately. Anytime I went outside, I smelled smoke. I could even see smoke.

About 9pm, I checked the weather forecast. The forecast was for smoke.

Forest fires in Southern Quebec. Wind blowing smoke in our direction. And this helpful tidbit: "The smell of smoke is predominant throughout the region."

No kidding. Wish I'd known that before 9pm!!

It was smokey all day today as well. The wind seems to have switched around to come off the ocean now but the clouds still have kind of a gold tint to them. next door neighbor thought someone down the street from us was at least it wasn't just me.

It was Joe too. I was laughing over the weather channel's forecast of smoke and haze and he's like "yeah, what's up with that?" and went on to tell me about how he spent part of the day going outside to look to see who was burning stuff. Too funny...

Glad you're able to post again. By the way, you can delete my hack post if you'd like. =)
