As we head into Spring, I begin to think about green fairways and the blooming flowers planted in the yard.  In the high country, it’s time for those surprise spring storms so, skiing is still on my radar.  Enter the Colorado Double – Double…….ski for a few hours and then hit the golf course.

Unfortunately, it is also time for spring allergies to rear their ugly heads.  I am one of those people who suffer from these pesky allergies.  Luckily mine are not very severe and I do manage to Rambo through (I’m the one with the attractive runny eyes and snivel constantly)!  I’ve done a bit of research and, have learned a few interesting things about this annoying annual problem.

    The main cause of these allergies is pollen and the pollen is coming from trees not from flowers.  Flowers pollenate through insects, not from airborne particles.  In our neck of the woods (Thank you Al Roker), these trees are mostly Cottonwoods.  Our golf course is gorgeous with flowers around tee boxes and the Clubhouse and tree lined fairways.  These are invariably cottonwoods and when they bloom, the fairways can look almost snow covered.  Other trees that are pollen culprits are oak, mulberry, maple and birch.

One of the keys to beating spring allergies is to start taking allergy medications about 2 weeks before the start of the pollen season.  If you have respiratory problems such as asthma, COPD, and emphysema, you should be in constant contact with your physician.  Once symptoms begin, it is difficult to get rid of them.  In my case, I almost never have allergy problems unless it is on the golf course in the spring.  Needless to say, my golf bag always contains some type of allergy medication.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did
    you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into
    any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to
    help fix this problem?
