Allergy season is hitting some big numbers here in Southeast Minnesota and across the state, but we should be feeling pretty lucky that we can't knock the pollen off the trees.

It happened over in New Jersey when a man was trying to prove to his wife that he could knock the pollen off the trees, and he did just that. You can see the video from News 12 New Jersey HERE.

You can see the shape of the tree in pollen, which to me is absolutely amazing. As I watch it, I can only imagine I would be sneezing for the next eight years trying to get the pollen out of my system.

Forecasters are expecting a fairly low pollen count throughout the weekend here in Southeast Minnesota. The cool air and rain will help with that.
