No wonder my allergies have been so nightmarish the past few days. I took a look at Pollen.com. A lot of the pollen here is nothing I’ve ever really been exposed to before, at least not on any prolonged basis: cottonwood, poplar, cedar, juniper. The pollen I dealt with in Oakland was mostly mulberry, oak, and grass. Maple appears to be the only common variable so far (other than grass). The forecast is for the pollen count to be high for at least the next three days. Great.
