Love is in the air...

There is this disgusting yellow film covering EVERYTHING in Houston. I believe it is 99.9% oak pollen, and it basically feels like sand in your eyes, nose and lungs. No ammount of allergy eye drops squirted into your eyes will kill it, and shoveling fist-fulls of Claritin, Benadryl, etc. into your face only seems to dull the effects a bit.

I think the most revolting experience of this spring tree love-fest was seeing the pollen film collected like oily yellow paint on the tops of the rain collected in the ditches in our neighborhood last week. It was disgusting, and all I could think was, "Dear sweet, tender and juicy baby Jeehosephat- I have been breathing this until now!"
