Okanagan sunshine? - Kalamalka Lake in the blazing sun!

Smoke from hundreds of forest fires obscure the sun in the generally sunny Okanagan. First the floods put a damper on outdoor activities now the fires do the same. Up to 14,000 residents have been evacuated in various parts of the Central Interior. An entire trailer park burned down is Cache Creek. The map below depicts the current fire situation in British Columbia.
