So, it looks like flu season is here. And now you start hearing things like "worst in years", "bad flu season" and other phrases you'd rather not hear.

I got something right after Christmas, but I think it was just a cold (a bad, bad man cold of course, but I'm pretty sure it was just a cold) So now, we all start to worry. Every time someone sneezes at work or coughs at the supermarket, we'll be on high alert.

Every time someone says that someone else has the flu, we'll retrace our steps to determine if we were near that person, or near another person that was near that person. And stock up on the hand gel and the wipes. Here we go.

I really want to get some idea of how the flu is affecting Monmouth and Ocean Counties, so please take the poll, and please stay healthy!
