    DC area is in a code Maroon.. two steps worse than a code Red..

    I learned something, code purple and maroon are more serious than code red..

    Is this what LA and Pittsburgh Smog was like?

    TV “tower cams” can not see the District skyline, just like in a snow storm..

    It is! I happened to be in Pittsburgh on a day with an inversion (early 70's) and it was so bad they shut down all the steel mills. We had a survey crew working on one of the Interstates downtown. It was on a Friday and they wanted to finish the ramp they were working on. One of the crew had an asthma attack---he didn't make it home

    Between 1970 and 74 I flew in and out of Pittsburgh on a regular basis---I only had occasional views of the airport. Chicago O'Hare was about the same-----but worst of all was LAX---I could see the smog "tower" from Nevada.

    It is 299 here now---it stinks and no it does not smell like a camp fire

    The monolithic gray/brown sky we have been seeing daily has been replaced by a far more normal sky with clouds at multiple layers and patches of blue---we might even get some rain
