Yes, one of the ironies of relocating from New York to Utah, I see you are located in Pound Ridge and may relocate to an area that at times of the year can have worse air pollution than New York City.

In addition to auto emissions, etc. I was told that coal is more plentiful in Utah to be used for heating, especially in larger structures such as warehouses. And didn't I read somewhere back on the boards that fireplace and woodstove burning may have restrictions?

SLC getting major press and points in the "Going Green" department however, TRAX public transportation leading by example I think.

Yeah, it's a weird transition. And whatever pollution there is in Pound Ridge is NOTHING compared to NYC! Pound Ridge suffers mostly from noise pollution from peepers, crickets and katydids. Our neighbors are hundreds of feet away or more - the whole town is like Emigration Canyon. In normal winters we can just go cross country skiing out the front door. We see the stars. Our dog wanders free, we don't have to walk him. The NYC cycling clubs come up here to ride.

Yet.... taxes are 4 or 5x what they'd be in SLC. What's a down payment here buys a house for cash in SLC. We have to drive 4 or 5 hours to skiing that's a pale imitation of what you have. People are crazy and values are crazy. Everyone lives to work. We have the Gunks 90 minutes away. SLC has LCC minutes away.

So. The picture is pretty clear.

It was my first winter here last year coming from Iowa, and it never felt like winter to me. Never had more than a light jacket on, and I have a huge fur lined parka from my sub zero blizzard days in Iowa. I understand that was abnormal, so I'm interested to see what this winter brings, but man last year was not winter.
