I just came back from a week-long vacation in the mountains around Salt Lake City. While Utah has not suffered from wildfires like California, the Salt Lake Valley is known for its low air quality.

Luckily, the air we breathe in Columbus has been relatively clean and we did not experience any significant weather events this year.

Many other American cities are not that lucky.
