The yellow haze of spring

For someone with allergy-induced asthma, spring in Georgia requires two things to survive: plenty of inhaler refills and good prescription allergy meds. I had to laugh when I checked the pollen count this morning and saw that it was at 5,208, which is over 43 times a level considered "extremely high". Ironically, the yellow pollen from pine trees which covers metro Atlanta this time of year isn't considered allergenic.
