Last summer I had some real health issues from the smoke where I lived and now the Treasure Valley is dealing with air-quality alerts.

According to this Idaho Statesman article : 39 days with yellow, or moderate, levels of air pollution, and two days of orange alert-level pollution (both in August). Tuesday is expected to be another one of those orange days but hourly readings could show it’s better or worse (possibly in the red, or unhealthy for everyone, levels), according to an alert issued by IDEQ Monday afternoon.

I know I am not the only one but it seems like some of the issues are with doing intense exercise outside and those like myself that are already sensitive may want to try to take extra precautions. One of which is drinking enough water, yes that is extra important with the smoke.

Billy told me about a report that said vacuuming can cause the smoke in your noise to worsen. So knock off the house chores drink more water and air purifiers are great too.
