There. I said it. I hate mold; more specifically airborne mold that seems to be ever-present in central Virginia. In my so many years of broadcasting mold counts (supplied graciously by VAPA), I have NEVER seen them low.
Those counts have soared even higher than usual lately, due mostly to the recent rain followed by a spell of dryness. Mold begins as a living spore in our dampened ground, then gets into the air when it dries out.
This is a common cycle in Virginia because of our wet climate (averaging more rain annually than Seattle!). It’s something we have to live with around here, but we don’t have to like it. My sinuses will attest to that.
