That's my car last evening. See here - I'll prove it.

I do LOVE spring. It really is my favorite time of year. This year is one of the worst I remember for sheer quantity of pollen. In the breeze you can see the green stuff swirling in the air like smoke. We need a good rain - I mean come on and give us a break from all the tree pollens already - my kids and I want to breathe!

From WSB TV (our local ABC) here is the "official pollen chart"


0-30 Low

31-60 Moderate

61-120 High

Over 120 Extremely High

So wanna know what TODAY'S count is? Can you guess?


There's not enough Claritin on the planet to combat numbers like those.

For those of you just now enjoying the onset of spring, with it's flowers budding, grass greening, and days warming...


I'll keep you posted!

I just want you to know that you are not the only person who hated Eat,Pray,Love. My best friend and I belong to a book club and we were the only two people who thought the author was a big phony. She didn't have to pray because she WAS the prayer ( Oh PUH LEEZE)Apparently she has changed people's lives! For the worse I would say but I'm sure that's not what they mean.

don't you remember the pollen counts about 8-10 years ago over 8000?
