Evelyn has been sneezing all evening and just commented that there is a strange smell in the air. I went outside and realized she is correct... it stinks in Ohio City tonight. It is obvious why... the wind is coming from the East, where Mittal is located. I've lived on the near west side of Cleveland for over a year, on and off, and usually the air is very nice, coming from the north-west and so from over the lake... the nearest major pollution source I can think of are power plants down lake. But when the wind shifts, as with tonight, the smell of the air is brutal... and I assume it is bad for our health.
It must be much worse in Tremont, where they are on the lip of the Mittal site, and unbearable in Central and Slavic Village. I'm curious, who else notices the changes in the winds as they change the air conditions in their neighborhoods?
