Our chunky air, in Allison, Texas in Wise County. I’ve seen it worse, much worse. This was taken on a day when the wind was blowing. Just wait for a still day and it looks like Mordor.

The pollution is really bad. Last Thursday I drove to NM. I saw a frac truck in Wise County spewing like an open fire hydrant. I saw smog so bad I thought I was in L.A., CA. Then, you get really close to the NM border and it's like magic, you can see the outline of the trees and the air is really clean. The way it used to be when I drove to NM from TX.
Fresh, clean Texas Prairie, the way GOD intended it.
On the way back from NM I had my 'natural gas headache' the minute I hit Vernon and I had a metallic taste in my mouth by the time I hit Wichita Falls.
Ironically, I had neither of those things in Santa Fe.
On 114 W in Justin I saw two subdivision. One called "On the Well" and another neighborhood development using 'shale' in the title.
Now there's some frackin crazy stuff.
I experienced the same thing when I went to Paonia last summer–clear air, no headache or stuffy nose and no itchy, burning eyes. It was so fine!!!
