Salt lake my pretty city is blanketed with ucky smog that burns the lungs and most likely causes cancer. It is the 2nd smoggiest city in the Nation after Provo. I haven't run outside for days because rumor is if you spend ONE HOUR outside breathing the air it is the equivalent of smoking an entire pack of cigarettes. True? Who knows or cares. It is bad.
This morning driving to work I look over at the driver of the car next to me and the athletic good looking guy in his early 30's is driving and wearing a gas mask. I'm not joking a full on gas mask with different nobs and valves and so forth.
The thing is I found myself wishing I had a gas mask to wear when I'm out and about in the smog.
