ITS EVERYWHERE

well its that time of the year again...and down here in GA we're covered in tree sperm. the fucking yellow shit is literally everywhere. this has been the first week that we're consistently in the upper 70s to 80s so i took the doors and top off for what i was hoping to be for a while, but the pollen had different plans. im pretty allergic to the stuff, but decided to try and ride it out anyway. but i couldnt, so everything had to get vacuumed up and the doors and top went back on for the next few weeks i guess.

its killing me that its 80 and sunny, but still riding like its below 40 and cloudy...

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.

Yeah it sucks, sorry you had to close it back up.

I've developed some allergies over the last few years. Claratin seems to work okay for me so far.

Just about done with that shit here in Pensacola. Thank God!

I used to live in Atlanta, and I have never in my life seen such bad yellow shit in my life. I remember one day, I went outside to smoke, and my black work shoes were covered in tree sperm within 5 min.

Good Luck to you Brother!

It's a mess here too. The yellowish green powder is EVERYWHERE. I vaccum out the Jeep pretty often, and have actually been taking a wet rag to the dash and console along with a compressor. Unfortunately, it's just a matter of a couple hours, and the dehydrated arboreal cum is back again.

I still wouldn't trade having the top and doors off on these nice sunny days, because before long the miserable Texas summer heat will be upon us. I have to take the good with the bad and enjoy these temperatures while I can.

Here too...Ran through the car wash yesterday and by the time I got home it already had a layer. This morning it didn't even look like I had run through it! This yellow crap looks really good on my Red Rock paint.

Hate it....but this weather is soooo much better than it has been!!!

tree pollen was bad in Myrtle Beach when I was on vacation. Sitting in a parking lot a women told me she loved the color of my 'green' wrangler. She gave me a funny look when I told her is was dark charcoal! Don't think she believed me

It's the worst I can ever remember with the pollen here. Looks like a yellow haze off in the distance.

Plenty of it here in north Texas, too. My semi-rough textured (powdercoated)black Poison Spyder flare turned greenish-yellow.

Oh, that stuff is pollen.....I thought it was the stuff blowing off the backs of all of the pantie waists running around in the LA area. A load from a tree is much less nauseating.
