Yellow Snow

Every year around this time when everything is blooming, Atlanta is besieged by what some call "yellow snow", an appropriate term in my mind. The stuff is everywhere! Only a good rain storm will wash it all away. If you're allergic, nothing is better than rain right now, which, thankfully, we had lots of the past couple of days.

I took some pictures to illustrate how prevalent the pollen really is around here.

That's my car's windshield after just one night outside (no, that's not a doctored image).

Those are tire tracks in our parking lot

More and more pollen...

Glad I don't live there! Everything is blooming here as well, and is wrecking havoc on my allegies. I think I'd just be one itchy mess where you are :P

Whoa, that's thick. Can you ski in it? I used to need Flonase in Chicago. Maybe my crazy mortgage is worth it...
