Hot, hot, hot.

Here in Southern Alberta we’ve just come through the hottest summer in 136 years.

The forest fires are raging to the west in British Columbia and to the South in Montana. Smoke has filled the air since early August. Two inches of rain this year and weeks of temperatures in the high thirties. The semi-arid plains look grim. The dugout is empty – no more water for the trees that shelter my home. Even the chickens are nervous – they’re “chicken” for sure.

Just when you think things are at their worst, the west wind comes up and fanning the forest fires and blowing even more smoke into the area.
