That's Utah County under the split pea soup
The air quality in the UC has been horrible. We have an inversion layer above us that is trapping smog in the valley. Riding outside two days ago was like smoking two packs of cigarettes, not that I know what it’s like to smoke two packs of cigarettes. Just saying. Yesterday a weather system moved in and helped open up the layer so the air quality wasn’t as bad, hence the ride was like smoking only one pack of cigarettes.
By the way, I discovered yet another use for CarboRocket: Antifreeze. While my fingers, toes, and other parts froze during the ride, my CarboRocket remained fluid. Amazing.
Today, snow is dropping from the sky like you would expect at the end of December. Sad news, I don’t think the ride will be great. Good news, the smoking will be minimal.
