    Code Red air quality warning here in NC. two days ago, it wasn't supposed to affect us much. Things turned ugly fast. Hoping rain this evening will help but it is very hazy here right now.

    Not good here in the Triangle, I can tell you: Code Red air alert. The air is just dead still, too. Not a breath of a breeze. It's really very strange, given the low mid-day June temperature of 71F and rain obviously in the forecast.

    Shifting jet streams can make things very different very quickly I suppose.

    NYC air is currently yellow soup and when I open my window it smells like campfire. Pass the marshmallows.

    if it's a tick bite, get the long course of antibiotics, not the cheapo one. Not to be trifled with.

    Hmmm, opening night for my latest outdoor Shakespeare endeavor is Friday night. It's probably going to be rained out, but smoked out? Hope not. So far, we don't smell the campfire around here and the local Air Quality rank is "good".

    They put me on something for 10 days though they were more concerned about an infection than Lyme so thatís good (in my book).

    I have a friend who suffers from Alpha Gal Syndrome which she got from a tick bite - it is not fun.

    Our red alert came with no smoky smell, interestingly enough. That's why people needed extra warning of the danger.

    In a bizarre story of a person who has an almost identical DNA signature to me--my sister sustained 11 ticks bites over the course of Spring and Summer 2022, which is clearly nuts. When she was admitted to the Hospital in late September, her docs had a very difficult time arriving at a diagnosis and her condition steadily worsened. They kept shoving doxycycline into her which ultimately saved her life, while they tried to sort out the symptomology. Turns out she had concurrent infections of Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis along with remants of RMSF. For whatever reason they had a hard time identifying Babesiosis, which presents flu-like symptoms but no rash. For a hot minute they considered a Covid variant, discharged her only to have her readmit herself 2 days later.

    No, she doesn't live in a broken down mobile home in Appalachia, she's quite well-off and, my siblings and I had assumed, intelligent, yeah, despite evidence to the contrary. But she brings in mulch by the truckload and insists on spreading it herself. She had to have her entire home sanitized and inspected by the appropriate authority and now hires a landscaping crew to do most of the around-the-house stuff.

    I am not the outdoor type and I don't garden. The most outdoorsy thing I do is Shakespeare in the Park. The parks are in Cambridge, Massachusetts. There might be ticks in them, but I highly doubt it - no deer are ever in these parks. Some people do walk their dogs in them though, so ticks could presumably be brought in by the dogs.

    The tick that gave my friend Alpha Gal lived on Martha's Vineyard. I will not do outdoor Shakespeare on Martha's Vineyard.

    We are getting a faint smell of smoke on the SC coast for the last few hours. The alerts went out yesterday.

    Where are you on the SC coast? I'm just being nosy.
