Driving Me Gnatty
The Gnats are not abating. Since at least Saturday, it’s been impossible (or at least very uncomfortable) to be outside late afternoon until sunset. I’m not sure how widespread the plague o’ gnats is, but I did read something on it in the Jacksonville paper yesterday where people were winding up in the hospital there after being bit. How can these things be so dense over such are large area? The SJ-R has an article on the infestation today but it fails to answer why they are so bad this year. The story quotes a 51 year-old woman who says she’s never seen anything like this here. I haven’t either. Very strange.
