Out on a family farm right now between Ft.McLeod and Lethbridge and the high winds are blowing in smoke and I swear you can see smoke bands in the wind. Its apocalyptic.

I'm waiting for the smoke to subside and then I think I'll be replacing the air filters in my car, they have to be gross

It’s not us that needs the rain.

Rain in Calgary won’t do anything. The smoke will just blow back in.

You know if a Hollywood production company that's filming a post-apocalyptic movie were smart, they'd rush production into Calgary and the Okanagan right now. It would be a lot cooler if it weren't so awful to breathe outside.

Street lights outside our house came on at 6 pm yesterday.

Was swarmed by mosquitoes at the dog park for the first time in weeks. Mosquitoes. There isn't even any standing water anywhere.

I'm just waiting for the locusts and the plague of frogs.

I am looking out of my office window and it appears to be about 10:00 p.m...

In hell.
