There was a period some decades back in coastal Georgia when the moss all but disappeared from the oaks. No one knew why (some blamed car exhaust LOL), but eventually it came back with a vengeance. So my guess is that the growth patterns of Spanish Moss are inconsistent throughout the coastal South.
Spanish moss grows as far west as McAllen, Texas, where mesquite trees also grow!

A lot of people don't realize that the panhandle of Florida is wetter than the peninsula on average.
