Bad air quality from storms
Can you see the mountains? I can-barely. Usually I have a crystal clear view. This is what we were all breathing yesterday. And I was really having a tough time-so was my neighbor who also has asthma. Boy, can she wheeze!
My chest was tight, and I was coughing for a while. Too bad I have to actually go outdoors to get from one place to another. I'm fine in my house, but if I have to go outside to get in the car, or walk from the car into the kid's school, it's just enough to make my lungs hurt during these wind storms.
It seems like the weather is always worse before it gets better. This photo was taken while the wind was blowing in before the storm.Today it's raining. It's Memorial day weekend, and the pool just opened today. But with the rain and unusual temperatures-only about 60 degrees Fahrenheit, we are staying home. At least the air seems to be a little easier to breathe.
If changes in the weather bother you, stay indoors if you can. And keep the windows and doors closed. Today I am staying inside and cleaning out my sun room. Great holiday activity, huh? At least I'm keeping busy while I'm stuck in the house. But Monday should be just perfect for a BBQ. Hhmm, chicken or steak?
