There is neon green pollen from the pine trees, EVERYWHERE:icon_exclai m:

It's nasty. My poor Annie was coated in it. She stays under an overhang while being 100% covered with a waterproof sport bike cover. I took off the cover and wiped her down. I came back 45 minutes later, she was covered again. I can't wait for this part of warm weather to be over.

I know what you mean. That stuff is nasty... and it's everywhere... I couldn't see through the wife's car windshield the other day without cleaning it off before I pulled out of the driveway....

I'm thankful the bikes are in my workshop and not outside. In college, by bike sat out in the breezeway of our apartments... You couldn't tell that my F3 banana seat was actually black, until I got off the bike after riding it... in which case my *** was completely yellow (it's a great look walking around campus)

...specially if you're allergic. Dunno if it's the road dust, pollen or the mixture but I went through a three-inch bale of hankies yesterday alone... Eyes itch but daym if I even touch them, they swell like a pufferfish. Lucky it only lasts for some weeks but since the warmth came here a bit early this year everything is blooming all at once...

The pinetree pollen can be terrible in large amounts. It once looked like it was snowing when a breeze came threw the parking lot full of pine trees, and I almost died from sneezing lol.

Yep. Once in an office building where i used to work which overlooked a large valley, it looked like a layer of green smog going through the sky. It was a sight to see really.
