It's Officially Spring!

Ahhh yes, it's Spring time again. Don't I listen to the groundhogs and official seasons? No, I pay attention to other things. It's warm, the sun is out, people are wearing shorts, the grass is growing at an obnoxiously fast rate. Most importantly, however, my car is covered daily in a fine yellow powder: tree pollen. There is no winning battles against this menace and there is absolutely no hope of winning the war. No matter how nice your car looks one day, it'll look like complete garbage the next. See for yourself... these pictures were after one day of pollen accumulation.

(click pictures for more detail, hard to tell this small)

I was walking around outside yesterday and could literally see the pollen blowing around in the wind, almost like a poisonous gas coming to get me. It's only a matter of time before a The Happening-like event occurs, mark my words! Shyamalan wasn't making his first R rated movie, it was a futurementary (a documentary based on future events)! The trees have obviously nearly perfected the distribution system now, next up is the make-us-go-crazy component. Maybe they are just tired of Cary tearing their brethren down for boring, homogeneous shopping areas and housing developments...

  1. sounds like a great day to be walking your adoring pepper - by the way, he caught his first snake in the yard the other day - a two footer to be sure. He was so proud - he gave it the old whip of the head trick many times over.
