I think I've come to truly appreciate a smog-free day here in the San Fern Valley. After a torrential downpour this weekend (of the "Noah, get your boat" variety) the sun has emerged today and it is cool, crisp and clear. I see mountains I never knew existed. The light shades the hills like an Ansel Adams photo in full color. I stand outside and can actually see snow caps on the mountains only 10 miles away, and wonder if there will ever be a day when I will take a smog-free day for granted because they are no longer rare.
