Nasty Air

I spent the weekend packing and servicing scuba equipment, cleaning chicken coops, and generally resting in between.

We have had frequent “code orange” ozone days. I used to scoff at those affected but now at the ripe old age of soon to be 55 I can feel the difference.

The air is thick and nasty. It covers a large part of the metropolitan area so there is no escape. It makes me a bit wheezy and not conducive to deep breathing.  I need clean air so I sit inside during the worst part of the day to avoid exposure.

It will be like this on again and off again thru August or any time a big high pressure is set up off the coast and temperature soar stagnantly into the mid 90’s.

Officially five days until St Croix.

Just saw a great doc. about Jamacian culture and music.

How's the weather looking in the tropics?

The weather is a bit thick, lots of rain...but what the heck it is wet under water.

...and you can drink beer under water!

Yes Phfrankie. I have been trained by my expert instructor to do this but have never tried. I will on this trip. Picture to follow.

Very unsettled down in the tropics. Worst case you may have to stay down there longer!

Just 5 days until you can breathe deeply again...

I've even felt the effects of the air lately. I don't remember ever being bothered by it before, but a few weeks ago, I got a mild cough and cold and am still unable to quite shake the cough. Seems like the air makes it worse sometimes.

Dang. I'm getting old.
