Pollen count

Spring has officially sprung here in California: the news confirmed last night that basically every single flower and tree in all of California is now in bloom. So the pollen index is in the red zone. Even people without allergies per se, like me, are suffering from stuffy noses.

This is of course owing to the torrential downpours we suffered through, three or four periods where it rained non-stop for a week or more. The heavens opened up their floodgates and let it all come plunking down.

Interestingly enough, this did not make all the plants and trees and flowers fear for their lives and retreat back into the soil. Nope, they seem to have sprouted up with a fervor that humbles us mere humans, and makes us sneeze.
