Air quality = bad

8 09 2020

It was like this again yesterday.

Bad smoke. Maybe the worst. And apparently, it was coming from fires in Utah.

From the air-quality alert we’re under until 9 this morning (via the Weather Channel website):

IMPACTS…Areas of moderate to heavy smoke have been observed across central and western Colorado due to transported smoke from wildfires in northeastern Utah. Gusty winds and dry conditions at the Utah fires will result in high fire activity on Monday and continued periods of moderate to heavy smoke across central and western Colorado through at least Monday evening. Rain and snow moving into the area late Monday night will result in a significant decrease in smoke concentrations in central and northwestern Colorado by early Tuesday morning, with slower improvement expected for southwestern Colorado.

Uggy uggy yucky yucky.

Here’s hoping that the cooler weather and some moisture on its way disperses the smoke – and dampens any fires it also hopefully covers!

The temp dropped to 47 today, and we got a little sprinkle. It cleared the air, for sure!

It has been brutal these last two days! Hope that predicted moisture does come…but in this country, I always – and only – believe it when I see it. 😣

Hope some of the moisture went south far enough to cover ya’ll! It was just a drizzle here, but it’s all good!
