What is this thing that burns my eyes?

Sunshine?  I'd forgotten what it looked like.

Worst air in the nation

It doesn't have Blogger button so I can't share it without making you link, sorry.

Suffice it to say that Utah has had the WORST January as far as air quality goes.  It is impossible to tell the sun from a full moon.  The news said that breathing this air was like forcing everyone in the valley to smoke a full pack of cigarettes. 

Normally it takes a big wind to blow the gunk out of the valley.  SLC is like a bowl just waiting to be filled.  There have been no big winds, but there must be some higher up because I can see blue sky amidst the clouds.  Not haze, actual puffy white clouds.

What a wonderful day.


  1. Ewwww...bad air....we get a bit of that every summer when the pollution index goes through the roof. You need a respirator girl.

    1. Without doubt. We don't get it in th summer. This winter has been worse than most.

  2. We don't have that problem. Our problem right now is days and days of overcast and no sun. And as far as air quality - right now is probably the best time of year. Spring, summer and fall the air is full of agribusiness and lawn chemicals.

  3. Knock knock...... hello?

    We're here,

    on the porch,

    holding our cookies and casseroles,


  4. OT – nominated you (along with 10 others) for The Versatile Blogger award. See my blog for details.

    I don't think there is an actual winner but it made for a fun blogpost.
