For the last week, the meteorologists here have been telling us how bad the air quality is right now, due to an inversion that has trapped the layer of pollution in the valley. In fact, my parents called me crazy for running outside the other day. But I honestly couldn’t tell the difference.
But this morning I can almost imagine my throat burning a little bit as I breathe. Is the air quality that much worse, or have I finally let it get to me psychologically?
