Rain and Skeeters

May 24, 2007 at 12:25pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I haven’t noticed any mosquito armies this year—and thank goodness for that. I’m generally an insect fan, but nobody sucks my blood without my permission. That’s just rude. Have you folks in other parts of Lincoln noticed a rush of the little buzzing bozos thanks to May’s heavy rains?

Speaking of heavy rains, my rain gauge showed over 1.25 inches this morning, while KLIN was reporting 68 hundredths at their station. I’m just glad we got some moisture. I had held off on watering my garden because the forecast promised rain Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. When I looked outside this morning my plants seemed very pleased by the overnight shower.

I think the base camp for the armies is wilderness park.  you simply cannot stop moving.

I live pert near the salt creek levee trail and if you hit it when the sun is going down it is like rain them skeeters are so thick.

I’ve been working in the garage the last few nights and I’ve got the mosquito bites to prove it.  Quite a few, surprisingly, since I didn’t see all that many insects.  They must have had their cloaking devices activated.  This is south of Southpointe Pavilions.  We had 1.25 inches this morning too.

The .68 was since 12:00 a.m. on Thursday Morning at the studio, so if there was some rainfall prior to that last night, it may account for part of the discrepancy. 


BTW—I hope you heard the Morning Show give the Lincolnite blog some love last week when we talked about DirecTV and wireless internet.

Hey Jack, Good to hear from you. Unfortunately I missed out on the lovin’, but thanks!. I only get to listen to your show when I drive to work, and I don’t drive all that often. It’s too bad because you guys really do put on a good show.
