April Smog Advisory

The radio weather forecast was announcing a smog advisory for Parry Sound and Muskoka – cottage country.

On April 19!  This may not be the earliest ever, but has to be close.  Hamilton’s air quality is already rated as poor as of 7 AM today.  A Saturday, when less industry is working, and less commuters are on the road.

April is supposed to be a time of freshness, or showers, and of new growth.  The leeks have shot up to a few inches high in the hardwood bush near White Bluff.  Hepatica’s are out.  And the spring peepers are in full chorus.

It’s nice to get the spring warmth.  It would be nice to get it without the smog.
