Set? Hell, they've been here well over a week. Between the daffodils I pass on the way to our mailbox and the flowering trees in the vicinity of the row of mailboxes on Main Street, I'm sneezing and wheezing.

It is the best allergy mask I've ever owned. It's not perfect, the velcro has any annoying habit of getting caught in my hair and it does nothing to protect your eyes but it is worth the money in my view. If you are serious about avoiding allergens without medication I recommend it.

I love all the city people I know acting like the storm was overblown and no big deal, meanwhile everyplace 30 mins or more inland from the city still got hammered.

Remember Sandy and the storm before that?  The previous storm all the city got was rain and wind while Upstate NY got hammered.  Sandy?  Upstate barely got grazed and it was the City that got hammered.

It happens.

Should start to warm up after that.

It's been Spring-like weather for at least three weeks here on the Front Range. Supposed to hit 83F in town this afternoon.

Mine went off early last week. I don't know what was blooming and where but it was out to get me.

If, at 6:29 AM EDT it is still  trying to remain Winter, please let me know, since I am twelve miles from the giant squirrel that called for Spring to end on schedule, and I will yell at it on your behalf.

Spring will be here tomorrow?  That reminds me:  have to go to the hardware store and purchase an axe to cut down a weed in my backyard that wants to turn into a tree.  Unlike Eugene, I will not be careful with it.

I can rattle off 20 sneezes in a row. This spring came early in SoCal (mid February). and with an explosion of greenery and flowers and pollen. After years of drought, it's been a welcome change.

But I just stocked up on Benadryl last week. I'm gonna need it.

I'll consider it, but I have had a lot of problems in the pat with wearing allergy masks, the main one being my glasses constantly fogging up. Due to my severe nearsightedness I have thick Coke-bottle lenses, which in turn require a large eyeglass frame that touches the top of my cheeks.

My tree pollen allergies are really kicking my ass right now. Doesn't help that I live in a semi-rural area and there are a lot of trees in the protected wetlands area directly behind our duplex. And behind that stand of trees are, guess what? A hillside with even more trees.


THERE'S NO ESCAPE! :D

Spring came early in the Houston area.  About 3.5 weeks early.

There are a lot of live oaks and post oaks here.  The pollen coats everything a nice shade of yellow green.  It looks like one of those color festivals.

Guys, spring only arrives for half of the planet. Autumn arrives for the other half.

Summer seemed too short :(

your results may vary

if you get a slight improvement after two or three months go for it for sure

could take two years, I could not say

And here's a 100-year old live oak tree across the street from me.  It's in full, lime green bloom.  Live oaks have a dark green leaf most of the year, and don't ever completely lose their leaves.  They kind of molt in the Spring, and then go crazy, like this old thing is doing now.
 
2017-03-19 04:34:22 PM  
your body learns to recognize pollen as food, not invaders is the hypothesis

makes sense to me

they give shots, don't they

they also shoot horses

It's snowed two days in the past month in Wisconsin. And we've had 50+ temps almost every day outside of those snows.

That's just so wrong. I'm witnessing the beginning of the death of my favorite season.

Oh yea. Not long after they drop their leaves and then immediately leaf out again, they make about a metric assload of pollen that covers absolutely everything under them, and gets me every time.

Pollen has been blowing around here for 2 months.  Little rain we got this week only seems to make the trees produce more instead of rinsing everything off.

Don't have an issue with allergies, but I'm ready for my cat to lose 50% of her fur in the next few days.
