In a few weeks the last snow should finally melt and we will be on a slow crawl towards warmer weather.
It wasn’t the coldest winter on record, but the intensity of the snow storms during January this year made it hard to cope. I don’t think I have ever seen so much snowfall in my entire life. In my case I am lucky to work from home and had stocked up on food and supplies for a week in the event of getting so severely snowed in that I could not open any of my doors or windows to crawl out. Even if I could, there’s no way I could dig out my car to go anywhere unless the plows came to open the roads as well as everyones’ driveways. So when the extreme cold weather began to abate at last, I breathed a huge sigh of relief. At last I would get my much needed respite from the freezing winter cold. Unfortunately, spring time also marks the beginning of allergy season for me and I have been getting worse year by year no matter what I do. I will take the medication that my doctor offers me but it doesn’t seem to help over long periods of time. I had to instead buy an expensive device to put in my house if I wanted to breathe easily again. My only choice was to go out and buy an air purifier to improve the quality of my indoor air. And since it was the spring season, you can readily find these purifiers in many big box stores at affordable prices. You could get a bluetooth-ready air purifier with UV lights and a HEPA filter for just over $100. I didn’t have the item in my budget, but I managed to swing it with a credit card. I’m glad I did—my indoor air has never felt cleaner.
