Sneezing and wheezing your way through a day is not something any of us like to do and some of us suffer from seasonal allergies more than others. Something called the 2022 Allergy Capitals conducted a study of 100 of our nation's cities and Connecticut has 2 in the top 10 of the nation's worst for seasonal allergies.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America conducted the 2022 Allergy Capitals study of "The Most Challenging Places To Live With Allergies." They took 100 American cities and looked at several factors including Spring pollen scores, Fall Pollen scores, Over-the-counter medicine use, and more for the rankings. I have said this before and I will say it again, we absolutely love analytics in this building, and here is another excellent example of metrics making life better, sort of. We live in an area with a lot of pollen, I get these alerts quite a bit:
