This Saturday, Jenny and I will depart for our first vacation on our own, without family, since we got married. We’re headed up to Bar Harbor, Maine, next to Acadia National Park, and we’ll be staying first at the Open Hearth Inn, then at the Acadia Hotel.
This morning I discovered the Haze Cam Polution Visibility Camera Network, which takes pictures and measures particulates in both Acadia and Newark, New Jersey, among other places. I note this because Newark is up on the edge between medium and high, while Acadia, despite some current haziness by local standards, is way down at the lower levels.
In other words, we get to spend a week in cleaner air. This should be lovely for both of us, and especially for Jenny.
