It seems that API is usually a notch away from PSI. In any case, the readings are bad. In any reading, PSI readings makes you feel better. The skies are now blue, but the readings aren’t. OSI (aka Our Sensorial Index) maybe put into good use. Innately, it feels wrong; visually it may look right. Whatever it is, I hope the winds could first blow the haze away before a rain comes to wash up the air. NEA (National Environment Agency) site seems to be off on the *three day weather forecast as I am surfing now.
So I googled to get this^:
As it looks, rain may be coming as I read via google.
Checking out at ^^NEA weather for today
I hope to have thunderstorm but after the winds blow the haze off first. If human intervention takes so long to make a real effort, than pray hope weather will be on our side. The last few days of hazardous haze were like a historical experience. You can have air cons, air purifiers, humidifiers, aroma lamps and all; but nothing beats genuine natural fresh air. The grey ominous overcast looks worrying enough to question and to think about several issues. Should this lesson be left unlearnt, the next disaster will see us perished. We are merely 710 sq km big. A huge shroud is all you need to murder the entire city state. Those companies, whoever they are, must pay for this. Local companies included. – Karen Fu

Wrote this on Facebook that I want to share. It’s just a simple line:
‘Without the People, any Party’s useless’
Beat this for a haze lesson learnt.
Hope the skies could be blue soon. It’s good for the people and the people do deserve fine skies. – Karen Fu

Just after I posted the earlier blog post, the skies got cleared all of a sudden. Wonder why and how, but I hope it stays that way. It’s a little bluish grey from my perspective here though largely blue skies with some fluttering clouds. I hope it rains. That will help clean up the air. I call this a miracle from what we see a few hours before and now. The image above shows yesterday and today. But really, a few hours ago, PSI was around 300. It’s around 120 now as of this message. I think it’s below 100 now. Cheers! Karen Fu
