Review of Madison, Wisconsin

Breathing - poor quality of air
Star Rating - 5/18/2013
I moved to Madison a month ago from Gainesville, Fl because the climate there gave e terrible asthma. I thought the air would be better in Madison. I was here 10 days and started having terrible coughing attacks. I had a severe asthma attack and am staying inside. I am also wearing a mask when I go out. I plan to move in 4 days. There is something very wrong with the air her - high particulate matter. It's too bad because I like the city and the people but must go where I can breath. If you plan to move to Madison go and stay for at least a week to see how you react to the climate.
