If you haven’t noticed, it’s pretty hazy outside.

Smoke from wildfires in Canada has been working down the East Coast, spurring many localities to issue air quality alerts.

The City of Alexandria said the city’s air quality is currently at red or purple due to unhealthy air pollutants.

For those looking to help filter out the air in their homes, word on the street is there were air purifiers in stock at the Potomac Yard Target as of a couple hours ago.
