Yellow Peril

For the love of all that is good and holy, just stay the heck indoors today. That was the advice we got during stage-2 smog alerts

The so-called Yellow Dust (hwangsa, 황사) is upon Korea again. But it's not as bad as in China [left: Lanzhou], where it's so bad it's getting front-page international coverage.

If it makes you feel any better, in Honolulu we occasionally have vog (volcano + fog). That's noxious sulfur dioxide leaking off the volcanoes on the Big Island. Also known as Pele's farts (not true, but it should be).

The BBC, Joongang DailyAP, and Wall Street Journal are also carrying the story.
