I got an e-mail yesterday from a co-worker who was telling me about the terrible weather  in her neck of the woods (i.e. in the area where she lives).

  • Put some anti-repellant on or you will get bitten by the mossies.
  • Stop scratching yourself! Your mossie bite can get infected.

What’s the weather like in your area? Have the mossies come out?
