Spring in Delaware means it’s sneezing and wheezing time for many

DOVER — Achoo!

Grab the tissue after the latest sneeze and blow your nose.

As always this time in May, the pollen count is up right now.

This spring doesn’t appear to be any worse than usual, said the DNREC staffer who measures the state’s count three days a week.

Rising heat, dry conditions with some wind mixed in will draw more pollen into the air, guaranteed. The rain may slow it, but can’t stop completely the process of plants in the reproduction cycle.
