We posted this air quality experiment last week on our social media networks and decided to post it here now that the warnings have been reinstated.
On Aug 16, 2018 a state of emergency was declared Province wide for British Columbia as 559 wild fires burn.
Air Quality Experiment: Aug 20, 2018
This morning at 10 am Diane cleaned the glass table outside & 8 hours later wiped it with a paper towel. That is a scary amount of particulate matter accumulated... is reporting that it's a 10+ on the air quality index, they also said that the particulates are so small that they can go through your lungs & enter your blood stream causing a number of potential Heath problems. So let this picture be a reminder to listen to the warnings & protect yourself the best you can...
I will not risk Diane's or my health riding a motorcycle in these conditions... We desperately need several days of heavy rain to help the brave fire fighters get these fires under control.
