    Usually here in the Valley we have really poor air quality but thanks to These forest fires our Air quality has gone down horribly. Driving to work today there is only about 5 miles or 8 kilometers of vision out in any direction. Here are some links to some pics of how bad my town is.... I just took them about 5 minutes ago. I gotta run otherwise I'd shrink them down and just post them in here.

    Across a vacant lot

    this one is probably shows the smog the best. So just bear with me if its to large of a picture

    In your area do you have decent air quality? How does the pollution look where you live?

    I live in the countryside!

    Don't have any of this smog that you talk of haha

    Only city I've lived in is Glasgow, which really isnt big enough for any sort of smog build up I wouldnt think. Where I stayed just smelled of hops quite often because of the near by brewary, which was great cause I loved the smell!

    Smog isn't a factor we see often in my town (Pop. 35,000), but it will become a problem in the future, most likely, given our growth rate. Right outside in town is a General Mills factory and it smells so heavily of cereal in that area, I love it.

    The problem with our Central Valley is the fact that we are Central of two very large cities; Los Angeles and Sacramento. Basically all the smog and pollution from those towns filters into my Valley and generally just stays trapped. It gets worse in situations like the current one where a Wildfire dumps all the smoke down the hills and right into our "bowl".

    Fresno has a population of around 500-750k depending on what Farming Communities you count into the mix. So even by ourselves we can build up some pretty bad pollution. It usually takes a really good rain to knock the crap out of the air, which could be a big reason why I love rain so much.

    Shouldn't the thread title be "Don't trust air you *Can* see"?
