Air should be invisible but lately we have been able to see the air in Vancouver and that’s not a good thing.
A long stretch of record hot weather combined with almost no rain has set off a string of wildfires all over the province and put our air quality into the stratosphere – it’s worse than Beijing right now. My brother is up in the interior of the province where the fires are located and it’s even hotter and smokier there; he had to disconnect his smoke detector because it kept going off.
The sun has turned red from the smokey air.Which brings us to the annual Honda Celebration of Light fireworks competition in the city. Would they still have it? And yes they did.
