Cycling with Smokey Air from the California Wildfires

The air here in California has been pretty bad, as a result of the 3 major fires (1 in the Bay Area, 2 in Southern California). If gotten really acquainted with Purpleair

This was at 11 am

It was kinda odd, that Sunday morning, when I woke up, it had a reading of 110 (150 is considered unhealthy). So I took a quick ride out. Climbed up Montebello Road, and seeing the view from up top, looking down on the valley was depressing.

There were many who had the same mindset as me … get out while the air is bearable.  I guess we were lucky, that we had this small window of bearable air.

This morning when I woke up, it got a lot worse.

I also hear on the news that the air today (11/12/2018) will be the worse day for air quality. I guess I’m driving again.

      Thanks. Hopefully the situation will improve by mid-week. For the time being, I’m driving, instead of riding to work.
