Tonight we stopped by Wal-Mart to try to find something to relieve John's allergy symptoms. We live in a dry area (New Mexico) but we usually have quite a bit of rain, and even a few snow days. But this season has been so dry. I can't remember the last time we've had any rain. We had snow flurries for, literally, about 5 minutes. Even though we have had a number of cold days (20 degrees) I only had to scrape ice from the window twice.
So what does this weather report have to do with allergies? It is so dry and dusty, but very windy that everyone is sneezing My family has gone through 3 six packs of big boxes of Puffs Plus in less than a month.
The picture shows the allergy section of our Wal-Mart pharmacy. Notice all the empty spots. Just wait till things start blooming!
