Cool down means catching up on all the garden chores I have neglected.
I live on a residential street that just happens to be the major thoroughfare off three main streets and leads to 2 large strip malls due to the design of this subdivision . Lucky me! I moved here from a completely different area and had I known this, I would have never have taken the house. With the three-way stop being directly in front of my home, the carbon monoxide never quits and the neighborhood is very near some large factories. I also did not know that there was a website www.moving.com/real-estate/compare-cities/index.asp. Gives you air quality information and this city is not much better than Los Angeles California.
We have just had large areas of the street replaced in which the cement had to be cut by saw for the expansion joints. It was never washed over so the cement dust flies every time the vehicles drive by. I was hoping my dust mask will protect my lungs since I used to suffer from chronic bronchitis and asthma years ago until I began avoiding the triggers and protecting my lungs from dust and smoke.

Uneasy to read about all the sources of air pollution coming at you in your new place. When we lived in a place like that, we invested in a good room air supply machine for the bedroom, which meant 8 or 9 hours a day breathing unpolluted air. Made big difference for us.
I used to have air purifiers in every room years ago when I was suffering from asthma. I have learned what to avoid so I no longer have as much problems. I do wear masks outside depending on what I am doing and when I do heavy cleaning. I still use a purifier once in a while. It does make a big difference. Thanks for your input and have a blessed day!
