CLEVELAND – Are you sneezing and coughing more than normal? Your allergies are most likely to blame as experts say, “Move over Polar Vortex, here comes the Pollen Vortex!”
According to doctors, pollen counts this allergy season are leading to more stuffed noses and coughing than before. That’s because thanks to the longer winter, flowers and plants are blooming at all once instead of gradually now that we’re seeing more warmer temps.
Not to mention, because of all the snow and moisture in the ground, the blooms that we’re seeing all at once, are also more robust.
According to the Spring Allergies Capital List 2014, Cleveland ranks with Youngstown and Toledo among 100 of the most challenging places to live for people with allergies.
Akron has all three cities beat, coming in at #32, the second highest in the state.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
