This little photo, folks, is an actual, not retouched, not enhanced in any way (only cropped) photo of a section of the hood of my black Jeep (taken with an iPhone4s).

At the end of my workday, I found my automobile cowering under a pile of the yellow sticky stuff. Driving fast doesn’t even come close to knocking that stuff off of there.

It’s in the air, on my car, covering the sidewalks and whaaaa-choooo! I’m officially one of the seven dwarves.

Um. Happy Spring?

    Juniper. Elm.

    I had to visiting executives come into my work yesterday. Both of them said that the minute they drove into Santa Fe, they began sneezing.

    It’s that bad!!

    Sneezing, dripping, coughing… I hate it.
    Shoulda bought stock in Kleenex and Benadryl.

      Nat – You merely uttered the word juniper, and I started sneezing.

      When I lived back in Our Fair New Mexico, I had to take allergy shots, it was so bad.

    Today I feel it is reason enough to move.

    No idea where but I can have that truck packed in a day.

    Snortling through life…

      I did a quick search on places with the best allergy rating. Portland, Seattle and South Bend were on the list. Places all beautiful in the summer, a little tough in the winter. Hmm.

    We have pine trees which drop tons of yellow powder. When it rains it leaves yellow streaks. They are so pretty, but only to those with no allergies.

      Anji – Pine trees are exactly the culprit in that photo. My car was parked in the garage at work, and yet, that pine powder came funneling in the small open air windows in the structure. Ugh!

      I got my car washed on Friday. It was pretty for about 10 minutes then the pine powder started up again.
