    We’ve had glorious sunsets lately. My allergies have been glorious too. Turns out an atmospheric inversion is the cause. the air quality is often ‘hazardous’ or a little less. An expert quoted in the Chronicle  “said people using their fireplaces is the biggest source of fine particle pollution”.

    No kidding. when I go out walking at night, I’ll often smell smoke from a single home over several blocks. It’s cold lately too, so there’s a lot of fires going.

    After the last many summers of fires and having to live in smoke filled air for months, smelling smoke from home fires jsut after the first rains gives me the willies. Really? Three months of smoke filled air ain’t enough, now we need several more brought on by roaring fireplaces?

    Recall that I live in an urban area. Still, home fires can’t be good for CO2 emissions either…
