Last evening I got bit by some mosquitoes for the first time in about two years. Along with our mild winters, mild summers, and beautiful scenery, Vancouver is also blessed by a lack of mosquitoes… usually. I’m not sure if it was the heat wave that brought them on but they somehow presented themselves while I slept. My windows weren’t open any more than usual, they’ve been wide open since the beginning of June. In any case, my torso and legs have now been blessed with some lovely red and slightly itchy welts.
Let’s hope this doesn’t continue, even if I want the great weather to persist.
