Morning Poll: How bad were your allergies yesterday?

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, yesterday was most likely not a great day for you.

Pollen was out in full force amid the sunny, springlike weather. According to the Capital Weather Gang, it was the second-worst day of the year so far for pollen levels in the D.C. area.

“Intense pollen seasons are becoming worse and longer in a warming world,” CWG noted.

For some, including in our office, yesterday was so bad that it warranted a sick day from work. For others, it was merely miserable.

Just out of curiosity about how widespread the misery was, today we’re asking readers: how bad it was for you?
