Indeed, I have been observing the relative paucity of wildfires this year, in Pacific NW of USA and in Canada.
Would be nice to drive under clear skies, no ash coating the car.
I think it's good for folks to be able to enjoy their own country.
Am wondering whether that might be the wave of the future: certain weeks or months, maybe not every year, when it's just for locals.
We are edging toward that in USA, without clearly thinking about it: locals might get "anytime" admission to a state park, whereas out-of-state plates vie for timed-entry slots.
