My Thoughts On The Forest Fires and Heat Wave Of The Summer

Hello everyone, it has been about a month since I have wrote a post on my website. Today I felt like I needed to post something because I have been thinking a lot about all of the forest fires that have been going on in my beautiful province of British Columbia, Canada. This has been on my mind for a little while now. It has been so hard to hear on the news and seeing so many posts all over social media. Knowing that so many people have had to evacuate their homes knowing that they would lose everything or hope that they still would have a home to come back to. Some people didn’t even get an evacuation warning some people had to grab things on the fly and just get out of their own home. There’s one town here in BC that was completely destroyed by the fires. Which to me is very heartbreaking. I’m still not sure if they know what caused that fire but all I know is that wether it was caused by a person or by another one of the fires, it’s still devastating. Now all of the smoke from the forest fires have finally made its way down into the lower mainland, which is really sad. It’s so sad to think that the forest fires keep getting worse and worse every year now. I feel that it has only started to get really bad in the last four to five years. I mean there has always been a forest fire somewhere in the summer but nothing likes this that I can remember.

Now not only have the fires been horrible but the weather has been a big problem as well. We have had record breaking temperatures as well which has cause us to have a heat wave that has been up to the 40c which would be 104F. I can tell you that I have never experienced anything like this before ever. I am hoping that this heat wave will come to an end soon because this has been the second time this summer already that we have had very high temperatures. We have only had a tiny little bit of rain which doesn’t help. We need a few days of rain to help contain these fires. I also want to take this moment to thank all of the hard working fire fighters that have been working so hard to keep everyone safe. Thank you for sacrificing your own time away from your family and friends to do your job.
