Ah-choo!gene, Oregon, once again worst allergy city in nation

Ah-choo!gene, Oregon, once again worst allergy city in nation



EUGENE, Ore. - One of the world's greatest cities for the arts and outdoors has landed atop another national list: the worst city in America for allergy sufferers.

Eugene climbed atop the national rankings of worst cities for allergies on Pollen.com over the weekend.

The forecast calls for pollen counts to increase through at least Wednesday and remain elevated until at least Thursday.

Thanks to the southern Willamette Valley's status as a world leader in grass seed farming, Eugene also winds up atop the worst city list several times each summer.


For some reason, hasn't hit me yet. I have no idea. (knocks wood) I'm just about the only one. I can hear sneezing in the hallway, LOL.

1. The worst place I have ever been for allergies

was upstate NY. My eyes were swollen completely shut.

I was far less allergic to eastern Mass, but still miserable for about a month every single year.

Here in NM, the cat sneezes more than I do in juniper/mulberry season.

2. That sounds horrible! I know out here there's a little chart where you can find out...

....what you're probably allergic to by finding when your symptoms are the worst. I should really invest the time and find out what, specifically, it is that irritates me. Because when it hits me, my eyes feel like sandpaper marbles in my head- along with all the other stuffiness, etc., that comes with allergies.

4. What am I allergic to?

Trees, grass and flowers.

Trust me, I'm in heaven here in the desert.

3. Wow. My sympathies to the allergy sufferers.

Neither my wife nor I have pollen allergies or asthma but I have close friends who dread the coming of spring because of them. We're a little way up the McKenzie so don't experience all the big valley weather, field burning, etc.

Guess we didn't help the air quality issues over the weekend: torched the burn pile on Saturday (very dry so not much smoke) and had the grass cut on our little 7 acre field for hay. I love the sweet smell of the grass as it drys.

Here's a little musical tribute that may remind you of the other, more wonderful, things of Spring:

Looking out your window you will wonder at the blooming in your yard
And every opening flower will be a mirror of the quickening in your heart.




Wishing everyone good breathing, no sneezing!

Thx for the post, PB.

5. I guess I'm just the obstinate one today...

I used to live in Oregon's dark orange area and never had an allergy ever. I now live in yellow UT and I have no problems but 2 in my family have it fairly bad. But the only place I have ever suffered allergies was when I was in South Carolina in dark green. Odd man out I guess.

6. Good to know... I think that might be contributing to a cough I've had for the last half year...

 

amongst other health conditions I have that I'm going in shortly to get dealt with today...
