Spring fever...

double dose, itching to get on the road and itching from allergies. Seems our wet fall and winter has kicked the spring pollen into overdrive, itchy eyes, runny nose and tissues all over the house. Had to start taking OTC allergy pills to function. Anyone else having similar problems with the pollen?

Did you say spring fever? Expecting a high of 60 degrees today, but...What's outside your window (got 3 inches overnight) this morning?

OK, maybe it's 4 inches. Ah, it'll all be gone by lunchtime.

Hi: cpaharley2008... No pollen allergies yet. I have a bad case of work allergies though. Cabin fever is back with a vengance and looking out the window just shows a pallet of whites that're not sand either!!!
Trailer service set for Apr 15th. Working on a shoping list... Pack bearings, check brake wiring,screen message at the border, new on/off switch & fix no electric w/h function, check power TV antenna, no reception. So far as my memory goes!!! I still have to wash off the Florida pollen too. Alf

Yes, Claritin twice a day and Nasacort first thing in the morning keep my symptoms relatively mild.

For about two week my "Granite Chrystal Metallic" EcoDiesel has been greenish yellow. I'm waiting to change the engine air filter until the pollen storm dies down.

Its springtime in the Rockies - the daffodils never lie.
Any resemblance to winter is pure coincidence.
