Any updates on the wild fires. How close to Mount-Tremblant?

The fires appear to be quite a bit straight north of Montreal and east of James Bay, but the smoke is travelling south. Can BugR smell it? He's a bit west of there. I'm going to guess Mt. Tremblant itself OK, but anything east (prevailing westerlies) and southeast might be seeing smoke. Looks like it's travelling a long way.

You don't go to Freddy Beach for the beach....

Duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound

I traveled to Queensbury, New York this morning and you could see the smoke in the air there.
I used to have a signature that that didn't follow the Forum Guidelines, #8 and had too large of graphics. But, now I have this sig until I reread the guidelines. You can bet that before I change it again I'll be extra careful to follow them!

You can definitely smell the smoke and there is a strong haze at the moment, the wind is blowing the worst to the East of us at the moment.
It's been very dry here and we had very low snow falls so it's going to be a busy season for the firefighters.

We have smoke and smell in Manchester, NH. Local News says it's from Quebec.

The NASA link appears to be from 2005. But maybe those are Quebec years!!

Well overnight we had a good 12 hrs of rain so that should help the firefighters.
I would mind another week it's been a really dry spring.

Just had a look at the weather for Mont-Tremblant and looks like a few days of rain in the near future. Hopefully that be the same in the areas of the fires. And then stop by the time of CFR.

Pierre and I conducted the site review yesterday the rain we had looks to have done the job, no smoke smell or haze at all.
