Duh --- Rare winter warning issued about poor air quality

[quote]It is believed to be the first regional midwinter air pollution advisory in Maine since the state began monitoring winter air quality around 1999.[/quote]

[quote]"I've been here for 12 years and I've never heard of an air advisory in the middle of winter in Maine," said Dr. Dora Anne Mills, director of Maine's Center for Disease Control and Prevention.[/quote]

Duh, Dora, there has never been an advisory issued. The article itself points out that an advisory has never been issued in winter and before 1999 we were not monitoring winter air quality.

At 1:13 in Portland Time and Temp says it is 61 Degrees F

Air Quality, for a Bermuda High, or is that low, that keeps the Humid Air down.

I am not sure this is much different than the winters we had in the early 1990s, when we had the same pattern, where we had temp inversion where the cold air was down low, and hot humid air up high..

I remember skiing at Sunday River, Fresh Snow, about three poles up, you broke through the THICK FOG and into the NICE WARM Air..

Actually I believe it is the hot air gusting out of the giant Hillary wind bag. Pretty much anything coming from her is toxic.

Between Maine Legislators going into session and all those politicians swarming around N.H. at the same time may be the major contributor to this problem.
