Is your city on the top 10 worst cities for allergy sufferers? Mine is and I definitely believe it. Most of my friends and family are already having symptoms and warm weather just arrived.

Thankfully mine is not.  I really suffer with seasonal allergies so I can't imagine living in one of those areas. I was surprised to see that my city is the lowest ranking for our area too.  I wouldn't have thought that!

We're not on the list at all, which I find amazing because my allergies are much worse here than when I lived in NY, which is all over the list. :S

We've been dealing with allergies for weeks now. It's terrible!!

I've heard since I moved to the Austin, TX area 7 1/2 years ago that its one of the worst palces for allegies, especially cedar.  One thing about that survey, its all about pollens.  I don't have a cedar allergy luckily though my daughter's allergies have gotten much worse since we moved here.  My allergy is mold, so I'd be curious to see a mold allegy listing.  Mine was actually much worse when I lived in Michigan though compared to Texas for mold.
