Orienteering 45:00 [1]

Family yellow course! Occasional running, but mostly walking. Sylvia seemed to have fun, stopped a fair bit for toddler fun! (Our time on course was definitely more than this!)

Got to see Ueli both before and after - so great to catch up!

Sylvia also did more biking before and after and even more after getting home. Really getting the hang of it, while at home I didn't ever have to help start her!

Wahoo! We're now just above 100 AQI, so only 'Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups' and almost to 'Moderate'. Day care is back on and while it still smells like smoke outside (even after lots of rain overnight), it's now a low enough amount that an N95 mask can handle it (at least, wearing one, I can't smell the smoke. When above 300, you can still smell smoke through an N95). Really wonderful, now hope the showers can continue and we keep getting a breeze from the Pacific that's strong enough to get over the coastal range and keep the Willamette valley clear of smoke!

Also seems like the major rains overnight didn't hit in the recently burned zones, so no major reports of landslides/debris flows/flash floods so far...

Note

Also - had anatomy scan today, which shows a healthy little boy! (Not sure if I've noted we're having a boy on AP yet, but genetics showed that a bit ago!) Fun to see him!
5 PM

Orienteering 39:44 [1] 3.66 mi (10:51 / mi)

This was soooo amazing! We picked up Sylvia from daycare and went straight to Champoeg State park to help the meet organizers with any controls they didn't feel sure about. The air was still a little iffy in Portland when we left, but it totally cleared up and just smelled so fresh and airy and amazing at Champoeg!

I ran around checking control placements, having a wonderful time. The park was nearly deserted - I don't think I've ever seen it this empty. Sylvia meanwhile *finally* got to take out her new b-day present for a spin: a pedal bike. She picked it up pretty quick! When I came back from this jaunt, she was able to pedal on her own.

Note

325 AQI this morning = still Hazardous. Yesterday's 'repreive' at just 'Very Unhealthy' was not long lived - only the morning. So far we've had Hazardous air every day since Saturday. This will hopefully finally turn with a system heading in tonight that should finally lift the strong inversion and hopefully also bring some rain...

Aerobics 30:00 [1]

More Zumba!

Wednesday Sep 16 #

Note

Still not good air out, but way better at 220 AQI this morning! And I gather we might have rain and at the very least the inversion of horribleness is ending, which should let the smoke escape more readily!!

Air purifier is more on purple (medium) setting than red (high) setting, which is comforting. Still not going into work, because HVAC is still on Covid settings of introducing as much outside air as possible. I'll consider going in when we're <100 AQI.

Aerobics 25:00 [1]

More Zumba in the living room! Squeezed in before I went to go emergency pickup S from daycare since the air had turned hazardous again. (They are closed if hazardous, early pickup/drop off if Very Unhealthy and welcome parents to contribute air purifiers to their children's classrooms... )

Picking up S from daycare was my first time stepping foot out of the house since Friday. This is hard.

Note

AQI 454 at nearest station this morning, still very much in the hazardous range, but at least not off the chart. At least the AQI is in low hundreds at the coast, so if the wind could be just significant enough to move that air over here, it would be great!

So another fully indoors day. Air purifier going strong. Only very occasionally do we get a detectable wiff of smoke in the house, I think things are sealed pretty well for a house from 1956, although clearly not perfectly or the air purifier wouldn't be working as hard as it is!

Note

Air quality of 496 at our nearest station this morning. All of Reed's classes are purely online for the day, anyone who is can is supposed to work from home, anyone who has to work outside will be in at least an N95 respirator and students who have respiratory health issues can have meals delivered to their dorm rooms.

A lot of that is way easier than it would have been otherwise, given we are setup for Covid...

Daycare is also cancelled.

Aerobics 34:00 [1]

Zumba - same routine as Sat, so a little less of a goof. Still have more than needs to come back to me. And our living room is a bit small for forward/backwards travel, but it's going to have to do! Sylvia joined for the first song.
