Pollen Takes Over In ENC!

You can run, but you can't hide. The yellow stuff is on the attack and wreaking havoc in Eastern Carolina.

Cars were lined up at a car wash in Beaufort County Monday.

Drivers were trying to clean off pollen.

But no matter how many times you wash, dry, or blow, it's going to come back with vengeance. Which has many resident's allergies raging.

Some drivers we spoke to told us they can't stand their black cars covered in yellow and have been washing the pollen off several times a day.

    Hummm. "Death in the sky". What an imagination. There are certainty many things that can be termed death in the sky including but not limited to bees. However, the condensation trail (contrail) in the wake of high altitude aircraft or high performance aircraft banking hard or breaking the sound barrier is a known and very reproducible phenomenon. Perhaps a basic physics lesson would help illiterate believers in conspiracy theory such as chemtrails. This might help http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/wxwise/class/contrail.html

    Aw thanks C. I haven't left my house since the "yellow haze" has taken over. I walk outside to water my flowers and my eyes itch/burn and my skin begins to itch. Meds are doing nothing but keep my nose from being stuffed! I'll be happy to see the rain this weekend. Plus I leave for vacation next week to cooler climates..so I'll get a break then!!

    I love all of the pollen because it is Mother Nature saying that it's time for spring. I don't mind pollen because it is only a temporary thing. Pollen is very important to all of our beautiful plants, flowers, and trees. But in all actuality, it does make me sneeze.

    To JB: Yes,I sure did notice it..at night,when highlighted by street lights and passing cars,it looked like fog! I sure feel bad for those folks who are allergic to it..y'all have my sincere sympathies.

    Did anyone notice the clouds of pollen floating by all weekend? My black dog turned yellow from so much pollen. So did my black Harley. Dang.
