Incredibly Foul Weather

Augh, the air here has been unbreathable as of late.  Smog, smoke, haze, dust particles...whatever it's called, it is causing me to be seriously worried. 

I don't run outside anymore.  What started as a convenient excuse to forego exercise (it is more hazardous to run outside in this weather than not to exercise at all), is, I am 100% convinced, legitimate.  The air quality has been so so bad this past week.

A screenshot of the air pollution in Hong Kong.  Yep, that would be a bright red "Unhealthy" across the board.  Ugh.

This is the view from my office.
You would be concerned too, right?
Come on Hong Kong, start DOING something about this!  I've heard that the air quality is so poor here because the government imposes no restrictions on the idling tankers and ships in the harbour, and imposes no diesel or gas or fuel emissions standards on the taxis and minibuses that zoom ferociously all over the city.

  1. Big sigh. You're normally so bright and perceptive! How many signs and hints must I drop in your path before you realize it's time to go home? Listen to New York whispering your name . . .
