these last two weeks in pasadena have been relatively smog free. sitting in our classroom on the second floor you can look down towards downtown pasadena and see the palm trees and the skyline and it’s beautiful. blue skies, great buildings and just a very nice view. the benchmark for southern california however is turning around and looking at the hills. if you can’t see the hills it’s a bad day, if you can kinda see the hills it’s not bad and if it’s completely clear, you’re doing great.
out of two weeks it’s been all but one day i could see the hills clearly. that one day it partially clear. not bad by california standards.
but i’m not ready to move back.
