. . . aka air pollution. This past fall, and now continuing into winter, has seen an outlandish number of "spare the air" days as stagnant air settles in over the entire bay area. (December had the second-lowest monthly rain total ever for Marin.) What's interesting is that crummy days get the same forecast as great days (sunny, highs in the 60's.)
Usually all the pollution that we generate is blown away from here . . . to San Jose, or Sacramento, or wherever. Somewhere else, anyway. How outrageous to have it stay right here!
