Smoke Over the Pond - My World
This was my world yesterday, May 31.
There are over 55 forest fires burning up in Quebec, Canada, which is about 250 miles away from us.
We awoke to the whole outside filled with smoke, which we thought was haze.
But when we opened the front door, the smoke smell was quite overwhelming.
The smoke hung around for the most of the day, and just before sunset, a warm front came through and the winds shifted the air back up towards the north, clearing the smoke from our area.
Many of the communities in the Quebec region have been evacuated, and they hope to have the fires under control by tomorrow.
This is the first time I have ever experienced this, and I can only imagine what it must be for the residents in those areas.
We will pray for their safety with the most minimal of damages.
