This is one list that it is good to be near the bottom or middle of. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has ranked the top 50 cities with the worst allergy problems for Spring and for Autumn. Chicago makes it to 41 and 30 resectively. So keep wishing for all those flowers to bloom and be glad you don't live in Louisville, KY.
