There is an air quality alert in effect for King County until noon on Monday. This is the second extension, so hope for a nice, strong wind to sweep out the wildfire smoke.

We had the dubious distinction of having the worst air quality in the nation on Sunday. Lake Forest Park was clear in the morning but joined the rest of Sound in the afternoon.

Ah - take a nice deep breath of the bracing sea air! This wasn't the only pleasure boat out on the Sound on Sunday.
