    Spring is in the air

    There's lot's of pollen everywhere
    so give me the allergy meds!

    (to the tune of some song back in the 70's or early 80's)


    Freaking pollen count today is 9,369....and we haven't even gotten to the grass pollen season yet.
    I feel like crap...

    Mine are bothering me too and I usually don't hit the meds until the 2nd week of august. I guess I'll get to complain early this year that Drixoral is no longer available.

    They're saying this is the highest level of pollen ever recorded. It seems the more trees we cut down the more the remaining ones release pollen to make us miserable. Both my wife and my daughter are at home in bed feeling awful.

    One of the great things about being in the tropics is almost no air borne pollen. Lots of people who have problem with pollen have no issues here. Tropical plants don't tend to pollinate due to breeze, because there is very little of it, and the rain tends to wash it all away.

    On the real plus side down here, I don't know the month if I don't look at the calendar... I am not kidding, either.

    This evening, the wind kicked up and I thought there was a fire somewhere....the pollen cloud was so thick it looked like smoke.

    In other events - I'm replacing my 15yr old 10 SEER heat pump with a 15 SEER Trane...at least it's not mid-July and 98F with 85% humidity.
