Cough, Cough…Sniff, Sniff
The air stings my lungs. My eyes burn and my throat is sore .
What a great way to get us in the Christmas spirit with dirty air and 80 degree temperatures!
The photo of the mountain was taken today (12/7/12). That mountain was only about 1/2 mile from where I stood, and it is normally a much clearer view.
The second photo, also taken today, illustrates just how dirty the air is today. Normally, you would be able to see mountains in that photo. Instead, there’s a white and brown mist hovering above the city. It almost looks as if the views are obstructed by smoke from a forest fire. However, there is no forest, thus no forest fire…it’s just the nasty Arizona air.
Merry Christmas, Arizona.
