Looks Like Snow But Isn't *Achoo*

It's that time of year again, when the cottonwood trees demonstrate how they got their name.

That's Why The Call Them Cottonwoods

Here's a cottonwood tree in the lot next to our house. No wonder my eyes hurt.

When the wind comes up (as happens quite often here), the air fills with cottonwood seeds, looking like a snowstorm but making my eyes itch like crazy. Yesterday we had a brief thunderstorm that tamped down the pollen a bit, but it's heating up again, so we can expect a new storm of itchy seed pods any time now.
