Does that mean all the smoking I do is just practice for days like today?

With a name of "King Flatulence" and you're worried about the bad air rating from combustible sources! It seems you would be well conditioned for these events.

Discussion: Today and tomorrow are Air Quality Alert Days in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Today, surface high pressure over the Minneapolis-St. Paul region will lead to stagnant conditions, reducing horizontal mixing and dispersion. In addition, a weak upper-level disturbance passing to the south will increase the moisture and humidity in the area, enhancing secondary fine particle formation in the atmosphere. These conditions, along with fresh emissions from the start of the work week and high particle carryover from the weekend, will cause particle levels to increase and AQI levels to be Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups. Localized areas could reach Unhealthy AQI levels. Tomorrow, the surface high pressure system will move towards the eastern Great Lakes region and combine with an approaching low pressure system to the north to drive moderate southerly winds across the Twin Cities. The winds will disperse some pollutants but will also bring additional particles and moisture into the area. These conditions, combined with high carryover particle levels across the region, will lead to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups AQI levels. Wednesday, an upper-level trough of low pressure will pass through the Upper Midwest late in the day, leading to increased vertical mixing and dispersion in the afternoon. Despite these conditions, continued light winds, elevated particle concentrations early in the day, and high carryover will result in high-end Moderate to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups AQI levels. Thursday, moderate westerly winds will disperse pollutants in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, causing particle levels to decrease. However, high carryover particle levels from the previous few days will keep AQI levels in the Moderate range. Friday, an upper-level trough of low pressure will begin to affect the Upper Midwest, enhancing vertical mixing and dispersion. In addition, moderate northerly winds will keep the low-levels of the atmosphere well-mixed and ushering in cleaner air. As a result, AQI levels will be Good. Saturday, a strong low pressure system moving across southern Minnesota will lead to widespread snow and moderate to strong northeasterly winds in the Twin Cities, keeping AQI levels Good.

Over the past two days I've been verbally accosted each time that I've ventured out to the suburbs. It's been several months since this has happened, so I was quite shocked. Maybe the bad air is affecting these motorists more than me, because I felt fine. I must say that I'm a good natured freek, who happily rides about the cities, and even the burbs, most days, year round.
