If you think your allergies are trying to kill you, you'd be right! This was taken on the job site this morning in Hixson. #pollenseason #TimberlineOutdoors #ChattanoogaTNPosted by Timberline Outdoors, LLC on Thursday, April 4, 2019
In the slow-motion video shared by Timberline Outdoors LLC, the branch starts to fall, and a cloud of pollen shakes loose from the limb. When the limb finally crashes to the ground, another cloud of the dreaded yellow stuff rises nearly 10 feet in the air.
"If you think your allergies are trying to kill you, you'd be right!" Timberline Outdoors captioned the video, which has been viewed more than 490,000 times since Thursday.
