I would appreciate advice on where to winter, central Florida in March has become unbearable for me and my two poodles when live oak flowers.
Are there any suggestions to park where the allergy problem is less.

Maybe do some time researching desert fever before recommending this area for allergies.

Northwest central Florida.

That's where I am because of the oak pollen that dang near killed me just south of here.

Just look at the planting zone map. Once you move up north into the next zone you will see more abundant real pine trees and very few oaks.

I'm doin fine since I moved more north.

Yes cooler temps at night, but here in Florida a forecast for cooler night temps means ONLY the last 2 hours before dawn. Not like up North the minute the sun goes down it drops to freezing.

Ya, I can take 2 hours of a chilly night to be able to be free of oak pollen AND have it go right back up to 80 in the morning! [emoticon]

Do not know about anywhere else in Az but Phoenix has had increasingly bad allergy seasons every year for the past 5. This year has been unbearable. Do not come here to get away from it.

South Texas is no better. Folks call it the "Texas Crud" but medical people say it is allergies. Very nice now.

I guess I should haver been more specific. I have a brother in-law who left Florida and moved to Surprise, Az. and said it cured his allergy problems. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Someplace where nothing at all grows...the Polar Ice Caps come to mind. But it's mighty cold there, or so I hear.

Still- no pollen! [emoticon]
