So the Texas Hill Contry is nice..........

Yeah the climate is good. However this week is when the cedar trees blow up. This is not fog, cedar pollen. North of San Antonio.

Yes, I remember my Jeep being dusted yellow many times when I lived in Texas. Have never encountered pollen like that anywhere else.

Re: So the Texas Hill Contry is nice..........

The pine pollen in NC, that happens in the spring, is far worse. Especially if there is no rain. Cars are covered in a yellow/green pollen. Walking across parking lots leaves foot prints and you can see puffs of the pollen as one walks.

I have worked in the woods cutting property lines where the pollen was so heavy I would be coughing so bad I thought my lungs would pop out. Awful if there is no rain to wash the pollen away.

The lakes will have the green/yellow pollen staining the water so that it looks like a chemical spill.

The sky will look foggy from the pollen, almost like a bad fire is burning.

Never seen anything like it in all of the different states I have lived. Thankfully, I don't have allergies, but the people who do, suffer greatly.

Later,
Dan
