this week i learned about vog. i honestly thought a woman at owen's preschool had misspoke when she mentioned how she thought her son's allergies were worse right now because of the vog! vog is volcanic smog that's been blowing our way from eruptions of the kilauea volcano on the big island. areas of the big island have been evacuated because it's can be harmful to have significant exposure to sulfur dioxide. the sky looks pretty hazy... much like LA on an exceptionally hazy day, but we're far enough away that the health risks are low. although, one of the side effects is lethargy.... at least now i have an additional excuse for wanting to take a nap!
