There was what I recognize from my time in California’s Central Valley as a tule fog. It seems to have trapped the emissions from U.S. Steel’s Clairton plant in the area, treating folks to a lovely sulfurous odor.
They really need to get rid of that fucking plant. Shut it down. Tear it down. Put something there that’s good for the residents.
