Straight from Winter to Summer here

We are havuung in the 80's (88 in Atlanta wednesday) here in Georgia. Pollen is so thick it looks like green smoke in some areas north of Athens.
Pollen count was 5733 today - just short of a new record. My roof is normally brown, today it is gray/green.

We just drove through from FL to NJ. In some areas of SC and NC, there was a green haze and the pollen just stuck to all the cars driving by.

I'm in OH & my car is covered with tree pollen. It's really been nice having temps in/near 80-degrees but it ain't gonna last. Thunderstorms tonight bringing cold. Supposed to have lows in the 30's by week's end. Ah, such is Spring in the north.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

This was on the ABC early morning National news. They were talking to a scientist who said that the normal pollen per inch count is usually in the 200's. They consider a bad year to be in the 500's.

The 5K+ counts now range on the entire eastern seaboard- from Maine to Florida and California from San Diego to San Francisco (mountains to coast only).

They said it was due to all the unseasonable rains in those area's have caused the pollen to explode.

They also said that anyone with allergies should stay inside between 5 am - 10 am. Who can do that? Not anyone who works or kids who go to school.

It's really, really bad for the poor folks with allergies!!!

Washed my truck (again) yesterday. Covered (again) with pollen this morning. To add insult to injury, a bird (a very big bird) crapped on it today. Think I'll wash the truck tomorrow.
