Sniffling Along

Here’s an ugly picture with a purpose. See all that yellow stuff on the surface of the water? That’s pollen.

Atlanta set a new pollen count record today. And for Atlanta to set a pollen count record, that’s saying something.

Atlanta shatters '99 pollen count record

”Monday’s pollen count is 8,164 particles of pollen per cubic meter of air. The previous record, set April 12, 1999, was 6,013 particles of pollen per cubic meter.”

”The average high for this time of year is 66, but highs have reached the low to mid-80s for several days in a row, causing all the trees to pollinate at the same time.”

I wonder of Al Gore will ever get an apology before he dies?
