Today I came across this video of a guy driving his backhoe into a pollen-laden tree. The effect is surreal! https://twitter.com/mikeseidel/status/993976662260944897?s=21 I can relate — the first year I spent living in the mountains I ran out to my meadow because I thought a fire was getting started in the forest nearby. Turned out it was just a gust of wind releasing a plume of pollen flowing across the meadow. It's always incredible to me just how much pollen trees seem to generate.

Which reminds me… pollen season is just about upon us…
