This is a picture of Highway 20 coming into Williams Lake, BC. We have about 8 big fires anywhere from 20 KM to 100 KM from the city and all the smoke is funneling into the valley. It is awful! I don't leave the house of my work unless it is to run to my car and drive home or to work. We have a suitcase packed just in case. I work at a local hotel and we are on alert to accept evacuees. They started coming in last night. This is even worse than the 2004 fire season. I have all my quilts packed into plastic totes in case we have to go in a hurry, but can't take my frame and quilting machine. Only the Janome will fit. Am I worrying too much? I don't think so!
