Lots here at the moment. It was hazy yesterday but you can smell it in town now.

Actually the smoke in Calgary is from a fire in BC.

Yes, we are having smoke from a fire in Kootenay National Park in BC. The skies are murky and sunsets are spectacular, but so far the smoke is not a problem -- and I'm quite sensitive to smoke in the air, normally. So, Sandia, if you're worried because of asthma or similar breathing issues, I would say so far so good.
