Clear the Beach!

Not because of hurricane Hannah, which will reach us on Sunday, most likely as a strong tropical breeze with rain, but because of mosquito spraying. A park worker came around to each person at the beach yesterday to tell us that the beach was closing at 5:30 on Thursday and Friday, so we had to clear out early (this time of year, we usually have until 8pm).

Here at home, the mosquitoes are dreadful. The whole village has complained about them, and since both West Nile and equine encephalitis are problems, I was really hoping for a bit of spray...just a bit. But not at the beach, where we never encounter any mosquitoes.

The latest news: They have canceled tonight's spraying festivities due to possible high winds.
