To start with I sincerely lament the hardships Canada is facing.
I'm in the North East of the US. Without a doubt our troubles due to the wildfires are but a fraction of what Canada is undergoing. I feels so bad for their sufferings.
The pictures shown here are from my local area. We have had odd dry thunderstorms. Breathing the air feels like inhaling wood dust, shards of glass and metal shavings. The air pollution makes the eyes burn, your throat hurt, nausea and so much more. At work masks where handed out after some students passed out. I myself have been struggling to breathe and a few times I have seriously debated going to the hospital.
What honestly stops me from seeking medical help is knowing I would have to step outside and drive myself. Outside and in the car is worst than being in my home. The last I was in the car (a few hours ago) I had started to see black spots and I feared I was going to pass out. I'm going to do my best to stick it out at home
Well my fellow GaG mates how are you all faring?
Please (do your best to) stay well and be safe during these rough times.
