    No point in even washing my truck right now. This makes me sad. I find washing my truck very relaxing, almost zen-like.

    DAMN YOU PINE TREES, DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!!!

    I lived in San Antonio for a long time and outside Houston for a while but where I am now (central NC) has the heaviest pine pollen I've ever seen. When you pull up mulch from the previous year there is a 1/4"-1/2" thick layer of solid yellow pollen! I washed and waxed my truck last weekend in preparation... there's just no point to doing it again until May. Although I am curious if the near-solid layer of yellow will make my SWB Tacoma look green!

    Most of the pollen around here, Vegas, is from Mulberry trees. The stuff is everywhere. When the wind blows, it turns the sky/area around the trees yellow. Then there are the flowers. They fall off the trees, and when they land on the cars it's like a pollen bomb went off. Olive trees give off a lot of pollen, but it's not as visible, just makes people with pollen allergies absolutely miserable for about a month.
