For almost two weeks now, we’ve been stuck in a really nasty inversion layer; the smog is socked in so thick, you can barely see more than a few blocks, and it’s colder in the valley than it is in the mountains … and it doesn’t look like it’s going to clear out until next Saturday at the very soonest.

If I don’t get out of the smog soon, I’m gonna go crazy. At least it should be good at altitude again tomorrow … going skiing with Steve, Amy and family at Snowbasin, which ought to be a lot of fun.

But it’s definitely time to clean the gunk out of the air.
