This is quite alarming!
Happy New Year Eric
as known the phenomenon is due to the lack of rainfall which normally keep clean the sky!
to me. Was there a forest fire nearby?
Happy New Year Marc
there were no fires in surrounding! It is just pollution coming from Po basin!
Italian officials need to reinstate their
"No Burn" policy.
Happy New Year Larry
no fires only smog!
to me: it is 25th of December and there is no snow (as everywhere in the Alps)
Happy New Year and happy climbing in 2016.
I agree, i have never seen the Alps so dry in late December and the smog hanging in the sky is just the result of the lack of rainfall. In recent days some snowfall happened, but for the moment is a small thing...
Happy New Year and happy climbing to you, too, Michael.
