Today is a "Code Orange" bad air day in Delaware. This means breathing may not be a good idea Tuesday and Wednesday are going to be as bad or worse:
- "A Code Orange air quality forecast for ozone or particulate matter is a level of pollution that can be unhealthy for sensitive groups, such as young children, the elderly, and those with heart and/or respiratory conditions. Such persons should limit outdoor activities, especially those that require a high level of exertion."
The actual circumstances include high ozone, high particulates, excessive heat, high humidity, and high pollen counts. All of these, individually, put stresses on the human body. Combine them with unaccustomed exertion and fumes from cooking fires and meat grilling, and you can be in trouble. Take care.
