The pollen counts are 9,369. The usual amount is like 800 or some ridiculous number. It is a record breaker. The pollen count is more than 35 percent higher than the previous record. The previous record was 13 years ago and the then-record pollen count was 6013. It's taking a toll on people and animals, for sure. We stayed inside from recess today, and that is a first, I think. Not too hot. Just too much pollen. The high counts are not from the unusual heat we've been having, but the mild winter. With every upside there's a downside, I guess.
Rain will take care of the problem. Now, a good, cool, rainy Saturday would be just the thing!
