Today at work we looked out a window and saw this big plume of smoke rising up out of one of the surrounding fields. Burning fields to prepare them for planting isn't common at home and but the airport is covered in farmland so I get to see some of the local farming practices up close. The fire was far enough away and across a parking lot from the tower, a reminder that I'm not living in Toronto anymore.
Later in the afternoon the burning moved into the areas next to the runways. I'm not sure how easy it is to spot but if you look right between the smoke and the grass you can see the fire. That line of flames moved really quickly along the ground until it ran out of fuel. Apologies for the i-phone pics but I wanted to preserve this moment for myself... proof that you can work in a glass box and return home smelling of smoke.
