We have been really fortunate to have a pretty mild winter that seems to be just flying by.

(I hope I didn't just jinx us)

With Springtime quickly approaching as much as it pains me to say this, it can bring a lot of allergy suffering to people around here.

According to AccuWeather, the east- coast should expect a long and tough allergy season. UGH!

They are predicting that we will have a rainy spring and when that happens it creates the perfect environment for pollen and other allergens to grow.

Most of the country and us included are also expected to have above-average pollen levels.

If you want to check the pollen levels in the Hudson Valley, check out Pollen.com. All you have to do is plug in your zip code and it will give you a breakdown of the pollen count each day.

It sounds like we should all go grab some Claritin and Zyrtec at the store.
