ATLANTA - If you've been feeling under the weather today, you're not alone.
It may be because of the pollen. According to Atlanta Allergy & Asthma's daily pollen report, Wednesday's pollen count is 4,667 – the highest pollen count for the year so far. Tree pollen is also in the "extremely high" range.
