    Hey, I know where that is. Used to go south from Fatalville that way.

    We had 3" of snow here at sunrise, if that helps.

    Yeppers, pollen coating everything, and a daily headache from it....even with zyrtec + mucinex! Ah well, the trees and blooms are so pretty! And thankfully it's only mid 50's today, vs 80°.....it's way too early for 80° days, imo! The locals hate this cold, though! Lol!

    Between love bugs, snakes, other creepy crawlies, and summer heat and humidity you could not pay me enough to live down South. Round about now we start looking forward to Spring and some greenery, but I'll take chilly Northern New England winters and a little snow any day before summer heat. I melt whenever it goes above 80 in the summer. When it hits 50 I'll convert to shorts for the season.

    Flushing your nose daily or more with a neti pot makes a huge difference...with the salt and baking soda in the water at specific amounts it is quite soothing and nothing like "getting water up your nose".

    Three is a sqeeze bottle sold at drug stores that does the business without the actual netti pot. You can buy the packets of premeasured salt and soda too.

    On the positive side, the kids can have fun making a pollen man in the yard and unlike a snowman it won't melt.

    This is Wisc, we are 10 days out from Paddy's Day parade and we still have 7-10 inches of snow from Monday's ice storm. No crocus whatsoever!

    But, we have the World Champions of Cheese in town, so got my cheesehead public sampling/voting fix on and plenty of ideas on new ways to serve.

    Cranberry Cinnamon Goat Chevre on triscuits. Sublime holiday pairing. Fave was smoked Feta from Prague. Buffalo milk cheese. Camel milk cheese!

    I went outside yesterday morning & noticed that the brown mud had changed to green grass & clover & Jonquils. Not far behind will be fire ants, mosquitoes, chiggers, snakes, weeds, sweat & the d@#* time change. I want winter back!!!!

    Garden is in and mostly planted. It was really too wet, but I didn't want to wait. Now it's rained another inch after I tilled, rowed and planted the bedding plants. I could have done this weeks ago but for all the rain.

    One day down south is far better than a lifetime spent up north.

    Sure, the south has pollen, and red mud and chiggers and the like-but we also have manners, sweet tea on demand, girls grow up knowing how to cook, good fishing, good hunting and even better-air conditioning. And people that don't talk so fast you can't understand them.

    I live in northern VA and it's too far north for me.

    ^^ I agree

    "In Georgia nights are softer than a whisper
    Beneath the quilt somebody's mother made by hand
    With the farmland like a tapestry passed down through generations
    And the peach trees stitched across the land

    There'll be cider up near Helen off the roadside
    And boiled peanuts in a bag to warm your fingers
    And the smoke from the chimneys meets it's maker in the sky
    With a song that winter wrote whose melody lingers

    And there's something 'bout the southland in the springtime
    Where the waters flow with confidence and reason
    Though I miss her when I'm gone, it won't ever be too long
    Till I'm home again to spend my favorite season

    When God made me born a yankee he was teasin'
    There's no place like home and none more pleasin'
    Than the southland in the springtime"

    Western NC; still the south but a bit cooler than the rest.

    It's still too wet to plant anything here but I do have to say that the blooms of the Chinese Witch Hazel are lovely covered with an inch of snow.

    The roads, however, were as slick as glass this morning

    Local RAW honey really does help with pollen allergies -- my beekeeper ex used to sell honey for this purpose and had lots of anecdotal reports of it helping. Get comb honey if you can, because it hasn't even been filtered.

    Yes, snakes!!!! You southerners can keep em, we have some, but none of the poisonous variety. I like hot weather, preferably 90*, but I’ll shiver through the few months of cold simply to avoid those slimy looking creatures! Even the garter snakes give me a fright!
