I suffer from almost everyone else the "Where in the heck did the weekend go?" routine when my alarm goes off on Monday morning. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but I also crave the weekends - but softening the blow of a Monday was when I walked out to my car.

The sky was blue and filled with clean air

I was immediately taken aback by the clear skies filled with CLEAN air. For the last couple of weeks, Bismarck/Mandan has been plagued by smoke in the skies from the fires that have been ongoing in Canada - therefore we have been walking around in potential health-damaging air. As I was driving into work, I heard Scott McGowan on our sister station Cool 98.7 relay the same observation that I had -  and it was dead-on!

"How awesome is it that we are experiencing fresh clean air in Bismarck"

Scott's word could not have been more accurate - the morning air combined with the sunshine beaming down, felt like a fall Monday morning! Later on in the day, he told me about a source you can go on yourself to monitor what our upcoming days will be like as far as our lungs are concerned.
