So there's that.

Just tuned in to this advisory on the Portland-based NOAA weather broadcast:

'...STAGNANT AIR CONDITIONS EXPECTED INTO NEXT WEEK...

Central Willamette Valley-South Willamette Valley-
Including the cities of Salem, McMinnville, Woodburn, Stayton,
Dallas, Eugene, Springfield, Corvallis, Albany, and Lebanon
918 AM PST Mon Dec 11 2017

...AIR STAGNATION ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM PST
THURSDAY...

* AIR QUALITY...Air quality may deteriorate due to an extended
period of stagnant air conditions.

* TIMING...through Thursday afternoon.

* LOCATIONS...The South and Central Willamette Valley.

* IMPACTS...Limited ventilation may result in deteriorating air
quality continuing this week.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Air Stagnation Advisory indicates that due to limited movement
of an air mass across the advisory area, pollution will increase
to dangerous levels. Persons with respiratory illness should
follow their physicians advice for dealing with high levels of
air pollution. ...'

Well, where I'm at now, it's probably pretty safe to say I don't have to worry too much about stagnant air or big-city pollution.

And - seriously - the night sky here is awesome.
