The entire world was coated in yellow dust this morning. The pollen was so thick, it almost looked as if it had snowed during the night. There were tire tracks in the pollen leading out of my apartment, showing the dark asphalt beneath the veneer of yellow. I am one of those people fortunate enough not to suffer any allergies to pollen. No hay fever. Nothing. To me it's just so much yellow dust. But I'm still amazed at the sheer quantity of the stuff.
