Just moved to Corona recently(behind skyline drive) ....... woke up this morning and could literally not see more than 500 ft away. There was a very heavy band of white/greyish cloud and fog-like mass in the backyard hovering at ground level.

Anyone living in Corona know for sure if that was cloud cover or fog or was it the ugly smog? I am worried I might have bought a new home in smog-infested area.

That's fog. Smog doesn't act like that and this isn't 19th century London(which is where it would act like that)

Are you serious? Do you think you'd have been able to breathe normally if the smog was that thick and blanketing? The fog is funneled through the canyon to your area from the coastal plain.

Hint: Smog isn't wet.

That's exactly what you did.

Thank you for the prompt replies.
I apologize for my ignorance but never experienced smog before so no idea what it looks /feels like. I was indeed hoping that was fog/cloud cover but was not sure ..... it held on for several hours even after the sun was out.

Fontucky, are you serious about that part of Corona being smog-infested area? I did check before putting offer on the house and was assured that part of Corona(South Corona) was ok to buy a home in.

Anyways, thanks all. Appreciate the info.

South Corona is better than the IE areas to the north, but this is So Cal, and air quality can always be an issue unless you're right up against the ocean(unless you're near the port complex)

I have heard that living in the IE is comparable to smoking a pack a day.

A long, long time ago it may have been.

[but today - seriously doubt it]
