The Yellowing of Atlanta





Every year about this time, we enjoy the yellowing of Atlanta. It's pollen season and around here it is Hell. For your understanding, a "high" pollen count is above 170 in however they count/score the particles. We've already had readings over 1000 this year and it's early! Notice on the tires, the windows, the roof, every bit of a car becomes yellow, along with the mailboxes, trashcans, roads, etc. Wha-chew!

I'm sorry - it must suck to have allergies. But, environmentally speaking, isn't a lot of pollin good, meaning plants are thriving? I'm sorry - just trying to see the bright side... 8-)

It's exactly the same way here - our cars look just like that! I spent the whole day outdoors yesterday and today I'm paying for it with itchy eyes and a sneezy nose. I love spring, but not this part of it!!!
