The Outdoors Sucks Today
This is a servicey post: If you can avoid it, don't go outside today. Not only are temperatures in the 90s, but the National Weather Service has also issued an "air quality alert," which is in effect until 11 p.m. Simplifying a lot of jargon, this means that pollution levels are high, so breathing is not fun. And it's not over after that -- get ready for a chance of some thunderstorms tonight. And highs in the 90s for most of the week. (Friday looks especially fun with a forecasted high of 97 and a little glowing symbol for "Hot.")
