So, I don't blog much but today I just wanted to give you an update on Atlanta and pollen. I've lived here my entire life and have to say I don't remember many days where you would look down the street through a yellow fog, but that has been the case since the weekend. Normally, the pollen isn't that big of a deal for me as my allergies are more from mold than pollen. Unfortunately, it's getting to me this year. Today is the second day of record breaking pollen counts - 9,369. Yesterday was high at 8,164. Our previous record high was recorded in April 1999 - 6,013. Here's the kicker though - anything over 500 is considered extremely high. I feel like I have sweet gum balls in my throat, eyes and sinuses - YUK! My skin itches and I've only been outside for maybe 5 minutes total today. I'm praying for a good hard rain to wash at least some of it away. Maybe then I can go back outdoors.
Sorry for whining.
