…what else is new?
This time, I’ve spent two full days labouring over visa requirements for my girl, who will be spending a year in the UK, furthering her studies of Consumption of British Beer. [The things you can write when your children don’t follow your blog…!]
Actually, she’ll be studying at the Uni of Edinburgh, but feels my assistance in Red-Tape Management is mandatory at the present. Thus the revisions I’ve promised to my agent are late-ish, and this post will be suitably short-ish.
This is a shot taken — and much annotated — from a satellite image [via @dbarefoot] of southern BC this week.
The province is, as you can see, currently awash in smoke [the white, filmy stuff] and flame [the red splotchy areas].
It’s been a bit worse here in Howe Sound than in Vancouver, mostly because of the chimney effect the Sound is having on the fires north of here.
Sending cooling, dampish thoughts to all those in the worst-hit areas.
As for me, I must wipe my streaming eyes and get back to these revisions.
