    Not hard to believe. When I go hiking and get some elevation. Looking down on the valley, espically towards Layton the air is a nasty yellow brown.

    Too bad I have to hike back down and breathe that stuff.

    A city 10 minutes away from me scored, not surprising. It's the furthest out being lumped in with the other two, so maybe I'm on the cleaner side

    SLC/Provo area is awful! I can see SLC area nested in that valley, but why Provo?

    Yeah, I think I have to move again. It's pretty clear outside now but our offices are all smoky. I guess it's from all those fireplaces going up at night.
