If you're allergic to ragweed, it will be the third week of August.

A huge amount of ragweed pollen could be eliminated from the air if the counties and farmers would just mow the roadside ditches sometime in early August.

Large number of coal plants? There is one in KCK and one near Worlds of Fun, that's two that I know of.

But they seem to put out nothing more than steam. I could be wrong though.

KC can be a pretty dirty city though. It may not always be orange or red alerts, but it gets smoggy there in the summer, but it sure is crystal clear and beautiful after a rain moves through town. That's when I get the camera out!

There are periods (or weeks) in the spring & summer when I have this awful cough. Allegra is $30 a month with insurance.
The doctor said my coughing is due to allergies. Drainage, sore throat, white spots in the throat.
I'd never had allergies in my life (no coughing spells) but she said you can get them when you get older. Yeah, I guess 54 is older.
Last summer the coughing got so bad I got some DucimexDM (sp) and would take one a day during the summer. It helped stop the coughing.
But, two weeks ago the coughing started again and got so bad. It was horrible- the coughing spells. I was at work and a fit of coughing would arise. It sounds like I'm dying and attracts so much unwanted attention that I decided I had to visit the doctor.
She gave me a prescription for Allegra D. I've been taking it for 5 days and I barely cough at all.
Now if I could only poop normally again

So, how do I find out when my allergy coughing spells are going to come? I mean without doing all kinds oftests at the doc's office.
Thanks, in advance!
lolololololol!!!!! Thank you for sharing!
