Today we had some much-needed rain – about half an inch around Austin. This is the first moisture we’ve had in over two months.
I had planned to go my church’s Christmas eve service but decided that it would not be in my best interest to be out in the cold damp air. I’ve been fighting a bad case of so-called “cedar fever” for nearly a week, with pounding headaches and all the rest. It really isn’t a fever but is actually an allergic reaction to cedar (juniper) pollen. The pollen count has been very high for several days.
