Today, Thursday January 12th is the fourteenth Spare the Air day of the Winter Season. By now, you've gotten the gist of what that means: the air is cold and lung-clogging, phlegm-inducing particulates are closer to the ground where they will surely give you cancer or maybe just make you sneeze or something. Anyway we don't need any more particulates (or phlegm for that matter), so let's just all remember not to burning anything today.

And there's a good chance wood burning will still be banned tomorrow, so maybe just go outside and enjoy this weather while we've got it. No reason to give the Prius-driving Air Quality Cops a reason to come plug up your chimney.
