we just got over it (I think) here in MA, and it was bad, so I am sure the Lake is going to be bad over the next few weeks.

You know it's bad when blue skies look green...

Still some pollen here in Massachusetts. The driveway is green as is the street, the roof, deck and everything else outdoors. Thankfully I had presence of mind to cover the baby in the garage since the pollen enters every time the door opens.

No longer terrible. For example--need to sweep porch weekly. Around Memorial Day, porch needed sweeping every 3 days.

In my experience -- Lakes Region follows about a week behind MA …… if that holds true- this week coming should be horrid !

It is the reverse of Fall foliage where MA follows about a week behind NH for peaks

I always associate Pine pollen (yellow) that groups up in big pools on the lake with Motorcycle week. Seems there is always large areas in coves and waterfronts around then which starts about now and ends in about 2 weeks. My pool in Bedford NH has it as of this week.

If there was a market for pine cones I'd be rich.

Agreed. I always associate it with Father's Day, which is the same as Motorcyle Week I guess.
