Alex is right regarding cloud seeding, the upside is often increased rainfall, the resulting downside can be greatly increased intensity in storms. I was raised in an area that has enough rain in April, May and June, but often gets very dry in July and August resulting in some years with crops drying in the fields and wells drying up leaving farmers with no water to feed livestock. They experimented with cloud seeding but stopped after a few storms resulted in large rainfalls destroying the crops over a signifigant area.
Was in Dali last Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and air was not so good compared to what i remember. So many more cars and congestion both in old town and new Dali. Farmers were doing a lot of burning of fields which i am sure contributed to haze.
Off topic: Return expressway from Dali to Kunming is closed for construction. You end up taking old highway through mountains which takes 3 hours for first 50KM with all the trucks having great difficulty on the grades. Entire trip took over 6 hours to get back to Kunming from Dali.

Metro has many things i cannot find other places, but i still find it a frustrating place to shop sometimes. Seem to frequently be out of things. For example their was very little fresh meat to choose from and actually they were out of many things and i was their just after lunch. They had no loaves of toasting bread and could not tell my wife when they would be getting more in. In looking at the fresh date on Hormel ham it had expired in September. However for first time i was able to shop all the aisles. Not filled with merchandise to be stocked or fork lifts.
Ate lunch today. Server was attentive. Food was good but a little slow in coming. Looking forward to eating dinner some evening and trying salad bar i have heard so much about.
To all those expecting an authentic Irish Pub come on we are after all living in China. I have eaten there several times and the burger is still the best in Kunming in my opinion. Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. Place is not perfect but what is in CHina. Owners have been wonderful in opening up early for special events like the US Super Bowl.
Went for Pizza special tonight. Had the Barbeque chicken and it was very good. Also enjoyed an exceptionally large order of French Fries. Everything was good tonight and owners where not there.
Wonderful place. Evening price is 88rmb which includes large salad buffet and they bring out skewers of the best beef i have had in China, also chicken, pork, sausages, goose, corn on cob to your table. They seem to slow down after 8 but before that constantly waiters bringing fresh meat and cut it onto your plate. Have eaten there 5 times in past 2 months and has always been excellent food and even better have never left with any stomach ills.
