  1. My lung/breathing problems began at the same time as the vast developments of O&G in the Greeley area. This explosion dumped particulates in the air all the way to Greeley. I was homebound for 5 days because of it. Thanks, "good neighbors."

    I am happy that this year has only seen green and yellow (mild elevation) days for ozone.
