I have allergies. Now, granted, they used to be worse when I was younger (many, many years of getting allergy shots 1x/month), but they still kick into high-gear in the spring. And Atlanta’s pollen is not helping the situation. Today’s pollen count was 5,449. I don’t follow pollen counts religiously, so I didn’t know how horrific that was until I did a little research. It goes like this:
- 0-30: Low
- 31-60: Moderate
- 61-120: High
- Over 120: Extremely High
So, with today’s pollen count of 5,499…well, you get the picture. Some of the kids in our apartment complex were washing cars yesterday because they were so gross. 20 min and $1 later, our car was clean and pollen free. 10 minutes after that – covered in pollen. It comes in the windows, through the screens, all over our desks, tables…it covers the ground, the cars, anything outside. It’s bad. Go away pollen.
