Spring in Michigan is beautiful, but along with the beauty comes the sniffling, watery eyes and runny nose.

Welcome to allergy season.

This year in Michigan, they are predicting a long spring and with that comes above-average pollen levels that are being predicted for our area.

More than 50 million Americans, including millions of children, suffer from seasonal allergies.

If you are one of those who suffers, seeing an allergist may help you, or you can help yourself by avoiding the outdoors at peak times for pollen which is basically  between 5 AM and 10 AM, and also at dusk.  Also buying stock in a tissue company might be a good idea as well.
