I just put the Christmas tree out to the curb and was happy to see it go.
Though it was beautiful to the end and gave one last blast of pine sent while clinging to the door frames as I dragged it out like a bouncer tossing out that guy who had too many cups of holiday cheer.
In Edmonton the trees are collected, mulched and composted.

The polls just closed on the municipal election in #Edmonton and as far as I know nobody is expecting much to change. At least in my ward (ward 6) the incumbent is expected to win, and many outlets are basically calling the Mayoral election with no votes counted yet.
A small part of me wants some complete rando to come from behind and sweep to victory.
The #Edmonton centre air monitoring station is slowly registering higher and higher airborne particulates concentrations (nb: there is a lag) I think the forecast was for the overall air quality index to hit 10 this evening, so basically don't go outside, ever again.
I like the idea of the Air Quality app the government puts out. But I wish it would give more info than just the aqhi. Like its forecasting a health index of 9/10 (so really bad) for tomorrow in #Edmonton and I'd like to know why, what parameters are expected to be high?
I assume particulates because of the forest fires.
