The pollen is terrible this year, it is oak pollen and is leaving a green film on everything. I don't suffer from allergies much, but even I had to sneeze a few times. I also was forced to rinse my car off as it had a green dust on it. However, we are having some wet weather coming up, and it may wash the pollen away..What about you? Are you having pollen issues?

@Courtlynn Pollen is always kind of a problem...in the Spring and Summer months it seems.

I don't have pollen issues, but my little son does . . . he gets puffy in the eyes when he comes back to school after winter . . . it's the ash trees at school (his principal has the same pollen issues).

I am only allergic to ragweed as far as I know and there is not much of it in VA but this pollen is something else!

@snowy22315 We finally had some rain this year, so when the pollen did its thing, the rain washed some of it . . . so it wasn't as bad as previous years. For us, the major pollen action has passed (I think).

Our next door neighbor has an oak tree, and I bet that tree is responsible for the green on our patio.

@snowy22315 Even our outdoor furniture has green on it. Yep, has to be the oak tree.

@Corbin5 most likely, but there probably isn't much you can do about it.

I do have allergies that have reared up this season. Not a green film as you describe but a little breeze or wind circulates pollen causing issues.

Yes, they said on the news this season is the worst for Oak pollen in many years.

If you are one who has allergic reactions to it, most likely!
