… I had to travel to the coast for a meeting yesterday, and I’m still recovering a little.
I drove near the area of a huge fire and was delayed a little while on the way back due to a fire in the median on I-95. Today is apparently the beginning of the “smog season” here and the smog alert was code orange this morning. I feel terrible that I contributed to the problem with this trip by burning two tanks of gasoline. Quite a few other people at the meeting had driven a long distance as well. Kind of goes back to the problem I wrestled with in this post about the relative harm and benefit of doing my job. There may be a lot more travel in my future and I’m a tad ambivalent about it.
Thanks, by the way, to everyone who posted comments on that post. I do appreciate the thoughtful comments.
