Speaking of Smokey…

Damn. And here I thought the Western U.S. was the place prone to bursting into flames. Seems Quebec has some flamable properties too — check out this satellite photo of the several-hundred-mile wide smoke plume that’s drifted down to the Eastern U.S. from Canada.
Click for the full scoop from NASA and for a full-sized version of the image. According to NASA:
The enormous smoke plume is almost 200 miles wide where it enters the United States over the New York and Vermont state lines. The thick pall is affecting air quality in places well to the south, including New York, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. The image shows the smoke drifting out over the Atlantic Ocean, and then curling back in over North Carolina (bottom right).
