Today folks on Vancouver Island woke to a sepia coloured sky. When we went out to the car this morning it was covered in a fine ash. Our Province is tinder dry and at stage 4 drought water restrictions. Summer came early and hot this year, and its bone dry. Currently there are 180 wild fires burning across the Province, 140 were caused by lightning and the remainder by humans. Campfires and open burning has been banned. Hundreds of men and women are working hard to contain and suppress the fires and one person today in Sechelt has lost their life.
Despite all of this we were out and about because my kiddo turned 18! It was off to breakfast and some fun.
