Last winter was the worst for me. I was miserable all winter and never felt like I could breathe right. I don't have asthma but lived off of inhalers for a month or so. I also had a cough that wouldn't go away. Related? Who knows, but I was miserable. I've never seen anyone wear a face mask outside of a doctor's office.

My sweet husband has terrible asthma...we lived in Park City for 16 years and moved down to the Salt Lake Valley in the summer of 08.
He has not had one asthma related problem since we moved from Park City to the Valley.
I am not cheerleading for the winter inversion but I am saying that it may not be as awful as some portray it to be.
I love the outdoor opportunities that living in SLC have for ME and my family. I know that others feel differently.
No place is perfect and we all pick our poison no matter which community we end up in.

My asthmatic mother lived in Salt Lake City for most of her life; she lived to be 96. My 21-year-old nephew, who has cystic fibrois, has also lived here since the day he was born. Yeah, the inversions are bad, but I agree with you. I don't believe it's a deadly as many portray it to be. Unpleasant and ugly as all get out? Yeah, but seriously damaging to your health, possibly not.

You're right. I've seen many three or four people wearing masks in Salt Lake City, and that's out of the literally thousands you see out and about.

Whether you adopt "The Sky Is Falling" attitude or a "it's not really so bad" thought, consider what doctors will tell you. I know mine has told me on a visit that occurred during the winter months, he sees a considerable increase in visits of those lung compromised during the inversion time periods, and frankly the "long term" effects of living in this environment have yet to be dealt with. To think you can breathe this junk year after year with NO side effects is indeed being an ostrich with your head in the sand. You choose where you want to live and that is that. The consequences must be dealt with. But ignoring it as if it's "not that bad" is beyond absurd. Considering we now have the dubious honor of some of the worst air to breath in the entire country is by NO means an honor. If it bothers you it is easily understood. If it doesn't than I guess you're just one of those people that figures you gonna die anyway so what the heck
