Today is Day 17 of the 2017 Fall pollen season. The pollen count has passed ten. Tens are painful. My way of coping with this horribly high pollen count was to get a bunch of paid work done after the sun went down, and then go to sleep with the window AC on.
Technically, the pollen count today is 10.5 (which is worse than if it was at 10). My sinuses are on fire, and the rest of me way too warm. I’m making an extra effort to stay hydrated because I can’t seem to stop sweating.
John Lindsey @PGE_John is the media relations rep and marine meteorologist for PG&E. Today, he tweeted “Unofficially, San Luis Obispo hit 115 degrees today, which smashed the all-time record high of 112 set on Sept. 4 1960.”
This is the second day in a row where the humidity caused the joints in my hands and feet to swell up and ache. If this keeps up, I’ll be trying to type with two fingers in a “hunt-and-peck” method, in an attempt to get some paid writing work done.
