It’s spring here. Finally. There was maybe 2 warm sunny pollen free days and now it’s in the 80’s, everyone is sneezing, and my car is covered in green dust. It’s pretty though, very pretty.
Saturday as I was walking thru downtown Decatur, I noticed what appeared to be a cloud of dust ahead. The spring breeze tossing it up between the buildings and across the road. I looked for earth moving equipment, a backhoe? Maybe a couple of really energetic guys with shovels? No, as I got closer I could seen that the dust was a pine tree shedding great gusts of pollen into the wind. Mother Nature’s spring cleaning- dust masks required.
It seems that the winter was so bad here and spring was so delayed that everything just suddenly blossomed overnight. So we’re getting what would normally be spread out over several weeks RIGHT NOW!
I’ve been trying to get my car washed since October but whenever I have a free day it rains or snows or some such. Now until the pollen stops there’s no point. I’m settling for clearing the windshield enough to see every morning (yes, it really is that bad) and biding my time.
