The big rains from yesterday continued through this morning. It seems to have stopped for now. The plants, delighted by the excess water after the long drought, will start spewing pollen into the air very soon.
Right now, it is cold and grey outside. I am breathing reasonably well, but that will change if the sun activates the surrounding plant life. The pollen count listed above may turn out to be misleading.
My husband is still sick from the “bug” he caught. He thinks it is probably bronchitis, so there is nothing to do but wait it out.
I am fairly certain that I have caught the “bug” from him and am in the early stages of it. We are both miserable and unable to get much work done.
