    Presently in BC Canada, we are having a LOT of Forest Fires and Smoke.
    The Smoke is NOT VERY PLEASANT.
    However this Smoke Made for a Beautiful Full Moon Last Night, so I thought I would share it here.

    Have you seen the new US lunar solar eclipse stamp? That may be a little OT, but it is a neat stamp that changes from an eclipse view to a full moon depending on temp. Eclipse is cool. The conversion temp is in the low 80's °F. It was published to commemorate the total eclipse across the central US in August.

    If your in rural area, make sure you create a firebreak on your property. This will save your home in the event fire comes close to you. Time to break out shovels and chain saws.
    Best of luck to you chem.

    Temperatures here are in the 30 to 40 Degree Celsius range (90 to 100 F).
    Been this hot for a few weeks now.
    Not really Possible for a fire break in this Town of 325 People.

    Mountains and DRY Evergreen trees ALL around this town.

    Someone started a fire just outside of town Earlier tonight, probably a Cigarette thrown from a vehicle on the highway.
    Our local fire department put it out.
    Their are STUPID PEOPLE OUT THEIR.
