It mercifully rained yesterday. There are a lot of fires in British Columbia. There are fires in Washington, Oregon, and California too, but there are especially a lot in BC. It seems to be the new normal as global warming accelerates.
The rain (and a shift in wind direction) cleared out the smoke. The sun returned today, but on the coast of the Olympic Peninsula it’s thick with fog. I stopped off at various beaches along Hwy 101 on my way to Port Angeles. This is beach 4. Yep, that’s what it’s called.
