I think I'm dead, or should be.
Gotta say this graph from our local Air Quality Index station at a park about 1/2 a block from our house, according to http://nvair.ndep.nv.gov/ showing our air quality from 8/22 to today, is one of the scariest things I've ever seen.
to this, on the 22nd, when I took the pictures of the yard I posted,
our air quality went from 13 at 11AM, to 31 at noon, to 201 at 1PM, then ROCKETED to 985 at 2PM, staying there for 5 hours before dropping to the still-insane-but-better reading of 228.
experiencing it that day, and the subsequent choking levels of our air,
I'm tending towards believing it. Other highlights include AQI
readings: 8/23 336, 8/24 355 and 8/25 427.
Right now we have a reading of 343.
over 300 is classified as 'Hazardous', the worst category for air
quality there is. I feel like I'm living in Beijing.
