We’ve been stuck in one of our infamous inversions since just before Christmas. And on Christmas day, the air quality in Cache Valley was the worst in the nation! Now it’s bad enough to be suffering through daytime highs of 8°F and nighttime lows near -10°F, but then throw breathing the dirtiest air in the nation into that equation, and well, it just makes you want to take a little trip.
And the cows are feeling the same way. Our milk production has really dropped this last week or so, not to worry though, our cheese yields have gone through the roof—plenty of milk solids still there to coax into cheese.
The ice fog did make for some pretty scenes, and the afternoon sunlight certainly took on a strange tint. I am posting some pictures taken the last few days … all showing the “positive” side to this not-so-great part of living in Cache Valley. This morning we awoke to snow falling and a thermometer reading of 22°F so things are looking up.—PS
