I just can't encourage kids and their families to go outside and run around with the air quality as bad as it is. Maybe it will be better on Saturday, but what if it's not? It seems to change hourly, and I just don't want to risk it.
We will go to Point Pinole another day.
Together we will help our friends and family and neighbors in the North Bay rebuild, restore, and heal. The devastation is horrible and tragic. But the community that will be built because of it will be strong and beautiful. My deep respect and thanks to all of the firefighters, police, volunteers, neighbors and public servants who are helping, saving, protecting, serving, and caring for these places and the plants and animals (humans included) that live there.
Take good care of yourself, of your kids, and your community. And we'll go outside and run around sometime soon.
