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.

Had a chilly 23 degrees last night here in northern NM. Snow flurries eariler in day. But I know it is Spring because the junipers are pollinating and everyone is sneezing and has itchy eyes, me included. We did not winterize our E21 after we got home in mid-March as we are heading soon to Silver City area. So, get worried when it gets that cold. We are connected to shore power here at our house and are running an electric heater and the furnace (after cleaning the sail switch again!). Weather report says warmer weather is on the way. Keeping hope alive!

Yes! In San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country, the oak trees are pollinating and yellow dust is everywhere. I am on Zyrtec-D twice a day.

It's spring here (just outside of Abq.). The apricot tree bloomed last week after a warm spell and the freezing temps are clearing them out last night and tonight. It's like clockwork, happens every year. It's how we know that the last freezing temps are about done here in the super high desert.

We still have snow , the ground is still frozen and the lakes are covered with ice
( Yes they are ice fishing but no longer driving on the ice )
Would love to get our trailer out of storage but will have to wait a few more weeks .

Just looked out the window ant it’s snowing like crazy — can’t see across the lake !!

I'm heading back into cool weather. Spent the winter in the Southwest, and as I move east, the nights are getting cooler! Something is wrong with this.

Itchy watery eyes here too! Our pollen is 'a lack of trailer-itis'! Just sold our previous beloved Fleetwood Highlander Sequoia to our niece and nephew. Bless them. Now the only 'Rx', and cure for our symptoms will be an E-21! The first baby photos of our Rx arrived last week - felt better already! Then just a few days later came the sad and unfortunate news of the fire. Our symptoms flared up again...but not for long. God bless the local firefighters and Rease, Tammy & Co for all their hard work to protect and get everything back up and running so quickly! Photos of our Rx resumed yesterday. Amazing!
