Holed up in the house today with a severe case of allergies. I succeeded in not scratching my eyes out but just barely. Not sure of the culprit but coincides with the fluff in the air.
Note that the air is fluffy. The car was covered with fluff. Cottonwoods (poplars) are doing their great seed distribution thing this week. I really hate the morning ritual in spring of washing pollen and fluff off my windshield so that I can see to drive. None of the trees in the immediate vicinity of my house are cottonwoods but there are some near by because -- FLUFF!
