Something’s in the Air

And it is nasty. The pollen count this week approached the record, set back in 1983, when 5,733 particles per cubic meter were measured on Tuesday. One week earlier, the pollen count was 17. Seven. Teen.

I washed the cars Tuesday night and, by morning, they were coated in yellow again. Walking in to work early Wednesday morning there were clouds of dust coming up off the sidewalk. Yellow dust clouds.

A little rain cleared some of it out of our Georgia air, but I suspect we’re not done yet … no one in my house is breathing well, even the dog is wheezing a bit.
