TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- You may not be able to see it -- until it lands, of course.
"[I've seen] a lot of pollen, all over the cars, everywhere," Tupelo resident Tanesha Akins said.
No one knows that more than Michael Ledbetter, who works at a local car wash.
This past weekend, there was no shortage of customers.
"Friday, it was 650. Saturday, it was a good 700 to almost 800 cars," Ledbetter said. "Sunday, it was pretty good, too. I guess [for customers], the pollen, you just gotta get it off."
It may come as no surprise then that the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America says Jackson, Miss., is the number one offender nationwide based on the pollen count and heavy reliance on allergy medications among patients there.
Some might be wondering why this season seems to be different this year than in the past.
The reason for that is because it's delayed this time around. And experts say that means it's going to be more concentrated.
It also means many adjust their schedules to limit their exposure, unless of course, you're a master gardener, like Reginald Rose.
"Don't be afraid to be outside. Just dress properly, and just be aware that you're gonna have a [high] pollen count going on now for the next two or three weeks," Rose said.
Still, there are activities you can perform at different times to minimize the impact.
"Instead of running during the day, try more early morning or night runs so it doesn't get to you as much," Tupelo resident Kristian Galloway said.
"Choose your time of day when it's not quite so windy and heavy with pollen," Rose added.
Whatever your strategy, keep in mind that seasonal allergies are just that: seasonal.
Until the end of April, though, they're here to stay.
And that means most will probably end up washing their vehicles more than once.
"Until all the pollen is gone in the spring, [customers will] keep coming," Ledbetter said.
Usually allergy season starts taking place in early to mid-March.
But experts say this year, it started last weekend for north Mississippi because of the cold temperatures that lingered last month.
