Funny, the Air Quality Index for our area is forecast to be 79, MODERATE, where susceptible groups are supposed to avoid heavy exertion. But it hasn't climbed above 60 all day. It's looking more and more as if our Spare the Air Day people are looking for publicity rather than trying to avert serious problems.
daniel, your analogy of the match dropping into the car's gas tank doesn't really work. Try again?

Doggone, just can't figure it out. San Jose was predicted to be at 102, unhealthy for sensitive groups. Never got there. Now their air quality is GOOD. Redwood City, still in the MODERATE range. Hmmm, you might have seen a bit of smog, but it doesn't sound like a spare the air, kill the joy day was justified.

Wood burners are already selfish people and pay not attention to Spare the Air Days. There needs to be an ordinance against fireplace burning. This is a Spare the Air Day and there has been burning wood smoke in the air since 6PM and now it's 10:15PM and the smoke is still in the air. I've had to keep my windows closed all night when I'd like to let some fresh air into the house.

Wood burners are selfish people?? Wow...Methinks people who want to open their windows on a cold, cold night, requiring them to then use resources to heat up their places afterwards, are selfish people.

Sat in the living room all New Years Day at a friends home with a view, and looked out across the entire Bay Area, one of the most clear days this year. Air Quality ought to be fired if they can't even predict something that is even close; or maybe they have another agenda.
