Greater City Providence

Blame Canada!

Apparently some huge ass wildfires north of Montréal are sending smoke all the way down here to Rhode Island. Here are some photos from Prospect Park around 6pm.

  • Thought something was strange.. Drove over the Pell Bridge and it was crystal clear at around 8am… then a haze set over Newport and it was difficult to see across Easton’s Bay to Middletown, etc.. The scent of burning wood was strong too – my coworkers thought a house was on fire nearby. But it lingered all the way back to Providence… and the haze was thick in spots. This answers it all!
