Salt Lake City is in the midst of an inversion. There is warm air above the valley that's trapping the cold air, and any pollutants spat out undeneath. 19 straight days of this goop (admittedly, there was one day it cleared a little), and 19 days of colder weather by SLC standards (average temp this time of year is high 30s, the warmest it's been in this stretch is about 33, 34, and it had to heat up to that).

See the mountains on the other side. Without the smog, you should see about 20 miles of suburbs in between. I'm not letting my 3-year-old play outside and breathe this crap, and I've been pre-emptively puffing on my inhaler (moderate asthma) because it's not good for my lungs either. Drive into the mountains above it, and not only is it clearer and healthier, it's about 10 degrees warmer. (I was going to drive up to Park City to get the boys out of this, but, in a bad confluence, Sundance was in town, and we would have never found a parking spot near the fun park where they could have run around). We get inversions every winter, but never this bad, at least since we moved here in 2000.

But we're supposed to get a storm that's should blow this gunk out. I'll gladly shovel 8 inches of snow if I can breathe outside.

Still, I hate winter #-o

Yesterday morning it was 34 degrees here!! The car was even frosted over, which can make it interesting since I have no reason to own a window scraper. Thankfully, I thought ahead and gave myself enough time to start the car early. Since we've been running 10 degrees above normal all winter, this was especially chilling! It did get up to 68 in the afternoon, though. We'll be back to 80 degrees by the end of the week.

wash dc - early this morning 21 (w/ wind.) Not the kind of wind one finds in downtown chicago, but still stings the face.

would be colder but winter's been mild here. hmm ..can you say "global climate change?"

Darth, why don't you and Indy come watch the Superbowl at my house? It should be around 80 degrees this weekend, plus you would be just a few hours from the gamesite!! BBQ at my house!

Went to the dentist this morning at that time and yes my face stung a bit.

About 40 and windy, 25mph with gusts to 40. Sunny and clear though which is rare around here this time of year. El ninyo(sp)
