Air quality badgeYou may be wondering why there wasn’t a lot of activity yesterday on The Terminal… We figured that we’d do our small part to reduce our carbon footprint with the region’s first air quality alert day of the season, though it’s hardly enough to do that by ourselves. Today will be a repeat, with our local air quality being at a "moderate" level due to the continued presence of winds blowing in from the south. UPDATE: The air quality alert  has been raised to red for today according to this report by The Birmingham News.

For those of you that are unaware, there are some things that can be done during an air quality alert to make life a little easier, including take advantage of our transit system’s reduced rates ($0.25 during an air quality alert day) or by simply reducing your travel if possible.

There are several other suggestions available for things you can do at the Alabama Partners for Clean Air website. Just don’t forget to tell your friends! 🙂

They just changed it to a red. (link) Of course, this morning my fiance's little girl and I headed out this morning to drop her off at school, and she says, "Mmmmm, smells like barbecue! But sad because it's making me cough." lol
