air quality today - friday
does anybody know where the air pollution in Guanajuato city is coming from today. It is higher up in the sky. So it is not car pollution. I heard there is a fire raging in Chiapas in a forest. is that reaching this valley?

The air quality index this morning on BreezoMeter app on the android and iphone said to stay inside. It is a little bit better this afternoon.

not an answer to the air quality question but a Guanajuato City specific weather site

shows a stream of high clouds now by the eye in the sky.

Check out
It shows that air currents right now are coming from Guadalajara and Michoacán.
It's highly unlikely that any sort of pollution from Chiapas would get this far. And I say that despite the claim I've seen on the SMA Snivel List that they can smell the tanneries in León there. ;-)

Our extended, six month, lack of rain really boosts the desert dust and particulates.

I am still looking for a place in Mexico that doesn't have this random sweeping air pollution. And long term it seems as a rough guess that I have experienced it about once a week in San Miguel d A and about once a month in GTO. (Sort of the good news / bad news when someone says something is worse somewhere else). I suppose the terrain diverts more of it over the mountain here, where in SMdA it can only seep in and permeate. Still when you wake up with burning eyes and feel the burning in the throat and chest it's certainly quite uncomfortable and can even instill a bit of panic if you are in the direct path of burning cane, corn stalks, trash or any of the other multitudes that go up in flames around here. At least it generates some fond memories back home of the former EPA while issuing a reality check to anyone considering permanently relocating to a spot where it is an issue (or desperately seeking one where it is not).

Not certain we solved our air quality question, but we got some new, great weather information websites to follow.

Basically the air quality question is answered daily - it will be bad or it will be not so bad or it will be relatively good. You can either breathe it or wear a mask, or close your windows, install a HVAC system with electronic air cells that dissipate the particles onto static collectors and can be washed in the dishwasher. (Had one of these is the US - great for those with alergies or asthma but it costs of course to run the fan all day) Opps I forgot, install a dish washer LOL. I don't think anyone knows what the air quality is or how it will change or if it will change, It just depends on things like if the trash burners set the fire going and the wind shifts, if the farmers cane or corn crop needs burning that day. I think it is unpredictable. :-) Just something you have to deal with when living in Mexico. There doesn't seem to be an organization to regulate it that I have ever heard of.
