another reason not to live in Siberia

As I sit here looking out at my patio — which I can’t actually see right now, but that I trust is still there underneath all that snow — I am thinking about an article I read this morning.  You see, there is a part of Siberia where the open coal fields and factories and pollution are so bad that snow, when it falls, sometimes comes down black instead of white.  Not only is it ugly but it’s physically toxic. I have faith that my patio will be back...  Until then, this isn’t such a bad view.
