I just returned from a family visit in San Francisco. Sadly, my uncle recently died from throat cancer.
Despite the sad reason for my visit, I enjoyed seeing my family clan, all of whom are originally from the San Francisco Bay Area.
My only problem was I had considerable troubles with my asthma while there.
The sky was so blue and the air was so much cleaner than Phoenix air. So, why was my asthma so bad?
I'm glad I returned today or I would have had to gone to the ER as my throat was itching, my ears were itching and I could barely breath after multiple puffs on my inhaler.
I'm home in Phoenix with its terrible air and yet I can breath freely.
Strange. What could have caused me so many allergic/asthmatic problems in San Francisco (and Oakland, which I visited also) when the air was so incredibly clear and nothing appeared to be blooming?
