Allergy season

Weeds bloom near College Street outside downtown Beaumont on Friday, March 7, 2008. Spring means the beginning of allergy season.

Redbuds blossom at Tyrrell Park in Beaumont. The mild winter of 2008 equates to higher pollen counts and more mold in Southeast Texas. It also means more headaches for people with seasonal allergies.

this is the typical "we-still-have 10-feet-snow-drifts-in-Canada-type-blog-comment" so feel free to ignore this. Although I do suffer from allgergies, too.

Look at the bright side. With global warming, you'll get to suffer earlier every year. ;-}

The pollen has been just brutal this year. :(
