What’s in the air?
People always ask, “my nose is running and I’m sneezing, what’s in the air?” The answer depends on where you live. Up north, the middle of August is the start of ragweed season, lasting until the first frost in the fall. Down here, we have ragweed as well, just not the high seasonal peak, but also other weeds, grasses, and the ever-present mold spores. And without a frost, we have most of these pollens year-round.
