Yesterday afternoon, I went on a walk and I could barely breathe because of all the pollen. I was sneezing left and right, and just knew the pollen must have been high. Turns out, I was right.
Living in the Carolinas, allergies are something a lot of us have to deal with. I take daily medicine for mine. But even if you don’t have horrible allergies, you still notice when the pollen is high, thanks to it turning all of our cars yellow.
FUN FACT: Have you noticed there have been a lot more bees around recently too? They’ve been helping to move the pollen around.
Pollen counts are expected to be very high all this week, thanks to the warmer temperatures rolling in on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Oak pollen and pine remain the top allergy producers in and around Charlotte. We are watching the tree pollen continue to climb, but now grass pollen is becoming more and more of an issue too, almost matching the tree pollen’s wrath.
There is a chance for rain on Friday which could help to wash away the pollen but until then, stock up on those allergies meds if you suffer from allergies like me.
