Just in case you didn’t noticed, yesterday was still winter…and a bone-chilling 80-ish degrees. With the hypothermia threatening, we were forced to do what most people do in winter, we slept with the windows open. Uncomfortably, mind you, as I kept waking up from dreams that I was working in a steel smeltering works.
Thankfully, spring arrived today. I was hoping it would bring a break for us humans from this ridiculous business, but apparently Spring was not about to be beaten by the Old Man Winter headed out the door. So, did we get a little moderation? No, sir and/or madam! Instead, we got to keep our 80+ degree March temperature and as an added bonus, the Pollen of DOOM!
Seriously, I just took the dog for a walk and I’m pretty sure I could taste the tree pollen in the air.
So. Um, yay for spring, I guess. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go wash the pollen out of my daughter’s eyes before she start to look like she went 12 rounds with George Foreman, before the grill.
