Default Agility Class cancelled

We had to cancel our Agility class yesterday due to the heavy smoke from the forest fires. This morning it is the worst it has been completely obscuring everything past my trees and a haze right up to my house. You can smell the smoke. We have a slight wind here but heavy winds where the fires are burning really increased the area that was burning last night.

The fires are about thirty miles north of us so not really too much danger of them coming this far but there are new ones starting all the time. It has been around 30 to 35 degrees the past while and feels like more with the sun obscured for most of the day. At least it goes down to around 10 at night so not too bad for sleeping.

Last year we had a lot of smoke at our local Agility trial from a small fire south of us but this year unless it changes by the 28th, it may be a lot worse.

Gee that's bad are the fire authority getting the fires under control? It maybe only 30 miles away but the wind could really either be in your favour or not! I hope it's the first one though. Keep upto date with the news/weather bulletines and stay safe.! Hope you can re schedule the classes soon ATB

That is a shame about your agility class and horrible about the forest fires! Not too long ago I looked out the window one morning and was convinced someone's house was on fire in the neighborhood. The smoke and haze turned out to be from the forest fires in Quebec. I hope things are brought under control soon, it's been a dry summer for sure.
