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.
