I can’t ever remember a time when Environment Canada issued a special statement like this for Lunenburg County…
It doesn’t surprise me though. For the last few nights since the fires have been burning, when I let my dog out to pee in the middle of the night, I smell smoke. Not real strong but enough to know it’s there and remind me of what’s happening to some of our province’s beautiful woodland not far away.
When we lived in China we were used to these advisories from the consulate. Gee, the air in China is not great the best of times, BUT you can always seem to smell pollution in the air there. BUT here in Canada, in Nova Scotia, land of clear blue skies and fresh salt air, you just don’t expect advisories like this or smell smoke when you are outside.
Still praying for rain….maybe this weekend.
