I just sat down at work to check this wonderful site (ahem, before I clocked in of course), forecast is 82 degrees here in north Chicago and all of the sudden my mouse hand feels a tickle. Sweet God Almighty I just flattened the first mosquito of the year! Anybody else a little sick from what all this warm weather might mean for the bugs this year?
Yep - was in Chicago most of this past week and got my first bite of the year on Friday. Disgusting. Jumped on a plane back to San Diego ASAP (and to 58 degrees and raining no less). Al Gore is beaming somewhere...
quote Duboly: "I'm hoping all the bugs will come out now, then we get a hard freeze to get rid of them all before our May trip. Once again "Deet" may be our best friend this year unfortunately." You took the words right out of my mouth, die skeeters die .

Haven't had a chance to be on the water yet. But spent most of the weekend on the bike. And my face fealt like a dang fly swatter. And my jacket and knees were covered in mosquitoes and nats...Grrrrrrrrrrrr
Come on out and visit us out here in the desert. Dont have many of those critters out here. They like water for some reason and the nearest water of any kind is about 10 miles away. Warm days, cool nights, clear skies and snow int he mountains, Gotta luv it.
I wish I were, I wish I might, I wish I was in the BWCA tonite!
