A pollen count of 120 or higher is considered to be “very high.” Guess where the pollen count currently stands in Atlanta?

5,156 and rising. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it this bad. Normal breathing should resume in late April.

Turns out there’s a reason for that.

    I’ve also heard that Atlanta has the most trees of any U.S. city.

    I know that used to be true, but I’m not sure that’s still the case (it may very well be).

    I’ve been told that Atlanta’s pollen counts are among the worst in the world. Thankfully, the pollen count is “down” to something like 2,600 today.

    Woohoo! Thanks to some cold weather and lots of rain, the pollen count is a little less than 300!
