Hold Your Breath I Guess

Temperature at departure = 73° F (23° C)

So, today is our second Orange Ozone Alert day of the summer. The media is encouraging us to limit our emissions. Great, and we're having fajitas today... The news reports today suggested the following steps:

  • Cut back on strenuous outside activities. They suggest staying indoors in the air conditioning.
  • Drive less. My favorite part of the report I heard was when they said to ride a bike or take a leisurely walk -- right after they said to hide indoors.

Oh well, at least we won't have to worry about giant bugs.

We're just getting our first orange day here in Columbus, though judging by my shallow breathing yesterday we were hitting it last night for a while. It absolutely amazes me that people can be so shallow as to ignore these alerts when some people are having trouble doing that most basic of human functions: breathing. Selfishness abounds.
