Chunky air Jah-bruary goes out like the Lamb of Judah into Spring. Selah!

<Bad air Jah-bruary goes out like a lamb; 9 sec.>

Greetings,

After a brutal month of bad/chunky/polluted air in Salt Lake City, it was so nice to have 60 degrees for the last Smile Jamaica of winter (Praise Jah!).

I have lived in SLC for coming up on 30 years. Seems like  each winter the Inversion Galore gets worse and worse.

Really vexes me when the weather man talks about “inversion” or “haze”. Yeah, bullflop – it’s smog and pollution.

Thankfully, I don’t have respiratory problems,  but even I got hit with a mild dose of bronchitis this month.

Smile Jamaica’s bronchial cure: Allegra-D in the morning, Mucinex at Noon, Flonase whiff before bedtime. As much water as I can slug down.

One thing about Spring: Hay fever. But at least the mornings are lighter and I get to go home in daylight.

Forward ever, backwards never!

bless, robt
