Yesterday, all day long, when we looked out the window it seemed as if there was almost some kind of smog outside, but it was slightly green in color. It was just like one big green cloud over the city. From our high apartment windows we could see it, but we couldn’t not figure out why in the world it looked…green.
This morning I was reading an article in the news about the anniversary of Chernobyl and it mentioned the green cloud. People here actually thought it was another nuclear disaster happening! Turns out it was a huge cloud of birch pollen. It’s a bit warmer this year, so there is more pollen in the air.
Here are two websites with some interesting info, video and pictures.
I was thinking about taking a picture myself yesterday, but didn’t. So these the website will have to satisfy, unless it happens again. But it looks very clear and nice out today.
