I'm miserable here in Cincinnati since the beginning of August and I think it's mostly ragweed.
When I'm on STX I feel MUCH better.
Is there a ragweed season there? Year round? Or not at all?

I'm not sure about ragweed but the pollen counts here are rather tame. What troubles the allergy sufferers here are dust and mold. The Sahara dust rolls in here so thick at times that it looks like inner city smog. The east-facing white curtins in my bedroom regularly turn brown. Mold counts here are exceptionally high - very often in the severe range. Here's a link:

Oh! I forgot to mention, when you look at the spikes in pollen and mold counts, you won't see the kind of seasonal spikes that you're accustomed to such as goldenrod in the spring and field cress in the fall. Here we have essentially one season - summer. The fruit trees bear year round. The spikes here are irregular and largely due to rainfall or lack thereof.
