August 18, 2018 : Shuswap Lake Update

 *** NEW ***    Follow us on Facebook for pictures, comments, and more...

A very dense layer of wildfire smoke moved into the Shuswap this morning and remained there all day. Last year's fire season was bad; however, I can't remember smoke getting as bad as is today. The other side of the lake is completely gone, the sun was a reddish silhouette at best, and the daylight was comparable to that of a bad winter day.
New fires keep popping up all over the Province; even without major thunderstorms happening. The Mabel Lake / Sugar Lake area shows a few new fires; surprisingly, there must be still some spots left in that region which haven't burned off yet. Four fires are now burning in the distant mountains of Seymour Arm and Anstey Arm. However, there is some hope of rain for the near future. Current forecasts predict a new rain season starting next weekend, lasting for at least a week and hopefully helps to get some of the fires under control.
