No, it's not bad luck looming over you. You can reduce air pollution by taking care of things around your house. Avoid using gasoline-powered lawn and garden equipment on days when the air quality is bad. Make sure your wood stove or fireplace is operating cleanly. Avoid burning leaves, trash and other materials. Anything that makes you healthier, helps you weather the storm.
