Allergists are warning that because this winter’s harsh “polar vortex” has delayed spring temperatures, many plants will release pollen simultaneously when warm weather finally breaks, creating a “pollen vortex” that could severely affect those with allergies. What do you think?

“I wish we’d get a good vortex for a change.”

James Wiley • Relish Maker


“I’m sure allergy sufferers will bear this hardship with their usual stoicism.”

Chris Mazzei • Rigging Slinger

“Oh boy, I hope I don’t accidentally say ‘polar vortex’ when I really mean ‘pollen vortex.’”

Peggy Piotroski • Law Clerk
