I think it's from all the traffic that travels through this valley.

It's not LA, but it is surprisingly bad, considering this is a mountain area.

I think that all the factories contributed to the bad air and water pollution, some of them not even near this state.

They just get trapped in the valley.

There are days, in the past week, when I have noticed the smog haze. Unless there is a lot of rain and low temperatures, coupled with a breeze, we are kind of doomed. Very disappointing.

You are from Kansas City? I loved Kansas City except for one thing. Something in the air there makes me cry. Everytime I went outdoors the tears rolled and I couldn't stop it, even when I was in the car. There is something in the air there that I guess I haven't come across anyplace else I have ever visited.
