Ozone Warning

This morning driving Kye to school, I was listening to the local Houston Christian radio station, KSBJ.

"Ozone Warning today."

I'm not quite sure what that means?!!!! As I tuned in even more attentively, the DJ said it was most hazardous for the elderly and the very young, causing them to have breathing issues.

Huh!

"As it heats up this afternoon, if you are elderly or have younger children, it may be best to stay inside."

Now I know this is a Houston radio station and I'm a little ways away from Houston, but it made me pause.

What does one do after hearing that we are having an ozone dangerous day!?!

I don't know, but I pondered.....

and then went on with my day....

Things that make you go hmmmmmm!

Thanks for the helpful information!

If you would stop and consider all of the "stuff" that we live with today, it would make you want to curl up in a fetal position inside a plastic bubble!! :)

But, God is Sovereign and we are not to worry, so I will leave it in His hands, but listening, it did make me stop and ponder.

Thanks again for the info, you well informed woman of God, you!!! :)
