British Columbia's on fire!!!

My friends Geraldine and Patrick got married at the weekend, and the venue they picked was in the middle of a series of particularly nasty forest fires. See here for more info.

A large portion of BC has been hit by dry weather and lots of lightening. Not good. We were on evacuation watch, but fortunately the fire didn't spread into the valley. Somewhat ironically, Vancouver is currently hosting the World Police and Fire Games, with more than 5,000 of the most qualified firemen in the world, but they're all playing Olympic-style games rather than fighting fires at the moment.

Amazing shots; I hope that the fires are kept under control. I gather that it is pretty hot there, with some record breaking temperatures, unlike the rest of North America.

wow. great shots. It really is bad this year. We are drowning in the east and you are sweltering out west. The news said BC was going to ask for firefighting help from Australia and the US. No mention of the WP&F; games idiots already out there.

hope it rains.

Euphro: It's been insane in Vancouver recently. We had 34 degrees last week, but we rarely get this humidity. I saw only my second lightning storm in Vancouver last week; normally it's too dry. It was going on during a massive firework display (I haven't watched all of that video, so I'm not sure if they captured all of the lightning, but it was pretty impressive.

Pemberton was 37 degrees in the shade, so wearing a suit for the wedding was pretty horrible...

Swamp: I'm hoping it rains soon too. I'm back in Van now, but my friends are still up in Pemberton, and the fires aren't showing any signs of dying down.
