SunCrest | Above the inversion

Say hello Newsletter | Facebook | Instagram 

After nearly a week of prolonged hacking, coughing and feeling like I couldnt get any air into my lungs; I decided to visit the Draper IHC Instacare.

I thought I was the only one with this crackling cough until I sat in the waiting room for few minutes and heard the roars of coughs. My diagnosis? Not pneumonia, bronchitis or RSV. The doctors opinion was that it was likely environmentally induced. Wait for it… the inversion!

Interestingly (and timely), I saw an article in the Salt Lake Tribune yesterday discussing the risks the inversion brings with air quality and exercise. Give it a read by clicking here.

At just over 6,000 feet, this time of year is a nice reminder of the lifestyle we enjoy living on the hill.

Just how bad it is? Check the photos below, and then follow us on Instagram for daily photo updates.

    For anyone curious about the effect the increase in elevation has I bought a PM2.5 and PM10 sensor and verified it’s accuracy with the Utah division of air quality. I live in Maple Hollow which is at about 4700 which isn’t even that high compared to the upper parts of Suncrest (at 6000 feet) and the measured PM2.5 is less then half of that at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi and 70% less then Provo. I haven’t had a chance to go up to the clubhouse but I suspect it’s even lower there. It’s not entirely correct that we are completely above all air pollution, but we are definitely above the majority of it. Posting this here since it’s one of the higher google search results when googling suncrest pollution.
