First of all, the weather was the worst I've ever seen it. The inversion and the smog was so bad, you could barely see or breathe, with warnings posted everywhere (DRIVE LESS) and people telling you not to go outside if you don't have to. I'm sorry, but how bad does the summer have to be before you say "16 degrees with no breathable air is better than this."?
In other news, the a1c was 6. It's been better, but that's not bad. Not bad at all.
