    Welcome to California. You take a walk outside and you're already a victim of second hand smoke.

    But anyways, thats sucks. Hopefully It'llclear up soon. My sis' is planning on taking a trip up there in the next two weeks.

    It sure was hot today. Just got back from my R/C club's airshow. Quite humid.

    @ Cybermarine. Your sig says you live in Mississauga. That first shot looks like Scarbourough. Did you move?

    I used to live in California (Los Angeles). Six years ago, I revisted that place to watch my older sister get married. Despite having cleaner gasoline and all these EPA controls, the air quality was still poor when I went there.

    :blunt: and the Lib gov't closed the Lakeview coal power plant in Mississauga because it contributes to bad air, yet we are still stuck with smoggy air, since a lot of the pollution comes from the USA. the air has been brutal this week, hot, humid, and hazy, unbearable.

    Yeah, and they didn't even bother to replace it. Nice going.

    I don't go to the east end very often. Changed quite a bit out there. The reason I thought it was Scarbourough is that the blue building in the first shot looks like the Warner Bros offices that's there.

    why bother replacing the energy Lakeview produces when we can conserve? :rolleyes: cuz, when the temp reaches 40C with the humidity, i definitely won't be firing up the air conditioner. again, :rolleyes: this has been the most brutal week humidity-wise i can remember.

    Well the US is a major cause of it all because of they're charcoal powerplants and the dominant winds go north...

    Yeah, I suppose the winds do go north in summer time. It is different come winter time.

    I don't care for Georgie porgie either. This is the richest nation on the planet, yet he supports corporations that say incorporating better environmental measure costs too much money. All they really want is to still be able to afford 5 houses and 10 cars and travel to tropics when they please :rolleyes: They are a bunch of sell outs....Greedy bastards.

    Thankfully once the polluted Southern Ontario air has reached Ottawa, it has thinned out significantly.
