    Horrible air quality here. I've never seen it so bad for so long. I've taken to wearing a mask when I go outside. I feel like I'm in Linfen.

    Wearing a mask is smart. You appear to be really effected by the Camp fire, and us over here with the Woolsey, the smoke isn't blowing this way.

    Smoke-filled air poses health risk in San Francisco

    It has been more than a week of unhealthy, even hazardous, air quality in Northern California. The smoke has obscured the San Francisco skyline – almost 200 miles away from the Camp Fire. CBS San Francisco's Anne Makovec reports.

    3 midterms this week. I definitely failed one of them.

    My friend in Daly City said his school was only closed a day despite the air being so ash heavy.

    I heard there were more than a few instances of schools remaining open when others in their district or general area were already closed, and the students and parents needed to complain, then some closed at noon.

    There is a very high bar for closure by air quality, it's a value of 200 or above, and even riding a reading of just under 200 schools won't close unless outside direction steps in.

    Most of the schools around here were closed today.

    An article I saw said breathing the air in SF today would've been like smoking 11 cigarettes.

    Worst air quality in the world right now.

    I'm bothered because I'm looking for entry level web development jobs in a new state so we can move to be closer to my fiance's mom who requires a lot of assistance. I'm worried that I will fail and not be able to help provide for me and my fiance. It's on my mind a lot.

    A company that I previously worked for, and was fired due to downsizing, just got its AOC revoked by the Authority, which basically means its done.
    Despite for it turned out for me and many other people who got previously fired, kinda feel sad about it. It was a pretty good workplace with awesome people and generally had a unique atmosphere.
    Really sad for the company and its people.
