A severe pollen count is 1,500. Yesterday Nashville was at 16,000. We're all gonna die of pollen.

It's horrible here too.

2. I'm in FL this week on vacation,

but I started noticing the pollen back home in Atlanta last week -- it leaves a chartreuse dust on everything.

5. The other night I could actually see it in the air. Our backyard lights made the pollen glow like

micro snowflakes. It was strange.

9. I bought local honey too but the trees still got me -

just went through steroid/antibiotic treatment. Last year when we had the drought I was much happier

8. It's probably more than that here in Knoxville.

In addition to regular Tennessee pollen, Knoxville is closer to the Smokies, so we've also got all the pollen from that, as well.

My son has been sick for days and my voice keeps sliding in and out of laryngitis.

12. On the North Shore of Boston and my car was covered in pollen this morning.

Usually on heavy pollen mornings, my car is honking yellow with pollen. This morning, covered in the stuff, not as much as it will be next month. But holy moley, it's MARCH. There should be snow on the car.
Well, off to the beach. I hear it's PACKED right now. 82, sunny and light breeze. This weekend
will be a different story.

14. It's close to those levels here, too.

I generally don't have problems this time of year, but everything is blooming at once, rather than being spread out over a period of weeks. For the first time in about 25 years, I had to take a Zyrtec. At first, I thought I caught something while traveling last week. But, since my eyes have been itchy, it dawned on me that it's more likely all this pollen causing it.
