Forsythia in Full Bloom 3/16/14

Flashback Friday, March 16, 2012 – It’s getting closer to sunset in my pick photo of the day. Looking west down the sidewalk in front of my house you can see out across the valley to a point of the Oquirrh Mountains where the Kennicot smoke stack is (no fumes pouring forth at the moment). You can also see the bird’s nest and at the very bottom left corner of this picture a tiny bit of a street lamp not yet lit.

An interesting observation about the refineries and some of the other air pollution emitting smokestacks here around Utah is that they are very active during storms when it is snowing or raining heavily, pouring extra stuff out into the air. They are also very active late at night. I used to see this especially at the oil refineries a little north of here along I-15 when I’d be driving home from a sweat lodge in Farmington late at night during storms.

I’m not sure what comes out of the smokestack we can see ahead but it is quiet now.
