A little Better, but still…

Air quality yesterday improved from Hazardous to Very Unhealthy. Here’s how that works:

This morning it’s back to Hazardous. Still, you can see in the picture below the marginal improvement over the picture I posted a couple days ago. This morning our number 434. So we stay indoors, only going to the mailbox once a day and that’s it.

For those suffering from floods, rain, wind, snow, and whatever, our best wishes for your safety and health.

    That is a very high number and I hate it that you and Barbara are going through this.

    The picture looks much better, though it is still very far from where we all wish it were. Hopefully the improvement, however gradual, will continue.

    And just now it dipped to merely UNHEALTHY. Hallelujah.

    Hang in there, Rick. This too shall pass. Probably like a kidney stone, but it will pass.

    So much suffering. You probably notice staying in less than a normal year since you were staying in anyway. Small consolation.

    Unbelievable that it is still so bad. My brother is mostly working from home, but I know he was going in to work one or two days a week.

    Hope the rain washes away the fires and Bad Air! Stay safe and test negative!

    We’ve had 2-3 weeks of mostly Haz/V. Haz air here in NorCal. The last week was mostly credited to Oregon fires rather than ours. But Wednesday morning the AQI maps were all green & it’s stayed green since. What a relief, but a wind shift could put us back in the murk again. No rain at all.

    • Interesting. Glad you’re breathing good air again, Art. Our smoke, by the maps we saw, blew west, nearly as far as Hawaii, though not so far south. I guess it could have gone down your way too. Now the wind shifted, and that early smoke is coming back over us. Rain today seems to be helping.
