Here, as promised, are the slightly blurry iPhone photos of last night’s sun going down amid the smog from forest fires happening two provinces away. All the particulate in the skies is having an effect on not just people’s health, but plant-life and the local farms here about.
There are a lot of dairy farms in our province, and heavy smog affects the cow’s health just as much as ours. It also mars milk output too. Less milk, and the possibility of tainted milk. This kind of weather takes a toll on everything on Planet Earth. And, in the end, we’re all going to pay the price.
