The New Mexico Cyclist's Blessing: "I Hope the Air is Good For You!"
Cece received a call from her friend Catherine early this morning asking if she was going to ride with the team this morning. Cece was not sure about whether the ride was on or not given the air quality from the Wallow Fire. Since she had not heard back, she decided to go about her day...she had a lot of shopping and cooking to do to prepare for a cooking lesson this evening and a party tomorrow for Yun's dad's 80th birthday!
It turns out that the team was starting from the exact location that Cece and Jamey had started from on Thursday and Cece commented to Catherine that she thought the air quality was better in the Northeast heights although her asthma was still kicking up a bit from her Thursday ride. Catherine was unsure whether they would ride or not. Cece is thinking that because we have "the box" here in Albuquerque, that it effects the air quality even worse. " The Albuquerque Box is a weather phenomenon where the lowest winds are moving in one direction and the higher level winds are moving in another. More specifically, in a perfect example of the Albuquerque Box, the high winds are from the south while the low winds are from the north."
As Cece, was saying goodbye to Catherine, she wished her the newly developed New Mexico cyclist's blessing...."I hope the air is good for you!"
