Yes, I know. Your car is now greeny-yellow, your nose is running, your eyes are watering, your head is aching, and so forth. After a cold winter, we are having a pollen filled Spring. Very Pollen Filled!
Even though the pollen counts are High, they are not record highs. However, the different pollens are overlaping this year. Usually pollens come at different intervals. But this year we have pine, oak, juniper and birch pollens at the same time.
Tree pollens should be gone in a few weeks, but then new pollens will enter the picture! Grass and then weeds will start adding their pollens to the already sneezing noses. Oh my, here we go again.
Some pollens, like Pine pollen, is in the air and all over the cars, porches, patios and such. But the pine pollen is too big to float around and get into our noses. Pine pollen tends to fall straight to the ground or onto cars.
But Pollen makes it possible for us to have honey, flowers, fruits and vegetables. Pollen is a good thing since eating and having trees for shade is very important!
So stay inside when possible especially during the middle of the day, use air conditioners with clean filters to minimize exposure and be happy for the rain that cleans the air. Stay Well.
