pollen, pollen, go away.

just for moral support, has anyone else been suffering the effects of atlanta’s ridiculous spring tree and grass pollen season?

(yes i recognize this is a stupid question with an obvious answer, but it is a blatant ploy for some sympathy.)

seriously, it’s been bad news for me this week. i had to stay home on monday dealing with multiple symptoms and have had a pollen-induced headache for about 6 days running now.

it is an annual rite of atlanta spring isn’t it? the yellow snow that covers everything from car windows to streets on the worst days.

i checked the weather channels pollen report this morning and our tree pollen has been out of control although starting to subside some.

of course that is quickly being replaced by a high level of grass pollen.

is there any escape? doubtful and i suppose this is the price i pay for all the trees we get to enjoy in this city.

    I’ve been sick all week. I caught a cough in Houston, and upon return to Atlanta my symptoms have worsened to include my usual allergies plus a fever. I’ve already exhausted my sick days to combat a recent stomach virus, as well as an upper-respiratory something-or-other back when it snowed.

    The weather is supposed to be beautiful this weekend, and I was hoping to attend the Twilight Criterium in Athens, as well as the Beltline Bike Tour. Nope, not gonna happen.

    Now, pleeth path thuh kleenexth.
