The Smog! The Smog!

Besides the snow and the heat coming on early, the other big story in town this week is the smog.  I realize that I say this about every six months or so, but I think yesterday was as bad as I’ve even seen it in Beijing. Within minutes of stepping outside my eyes were burning and I had a headache and felt sick to my stomach.

Yesterday a NASA satellite took an amazing photo of north China showing the extent of the smog.

I’m posting it here in case you think I’m exaggerating.

Now excuse me while I figure out a way to strap my air purifier onto my face.
