Halloween Costume

Shenyang is wearing an interesting Halloween costume today – a 969 air quality index.  I guess my costume will include a face mask.  It makes for a spooky day that leads one to wonder how many days are being taken away by breathing a fraction of that air outside.

Taking my life and lungs on a walk to school through this shit this morning. How appropriate that the latest “gift” from the company was a package of masks. The last gifts (air purifiers) are working overtime.

FYI, AirNOW lists the daily ratings in the US these days at 92 or less in southern California.

Happy Halloween!

AQI rating of 969
