The summer of heat and smoke
"This is a summer without precedent," that is what I heard the radio announcer say the other day. I have never seen the sky so brown and the air so bad. This week we have had a string of spare the air days. Last Tuesday I went on a bike ride. It was our weekly whine and dine ride. It was hot but the ride was fun. I thought it was fine to ride until I woke up Wednesday morning coughing like a smoker. I have not ridden my bike since. I've never seen anything like this.
