I live near the lake and walk down there when I can. Today I was greeted by swarms of gnats, or tsetse flies, or whatever they are - those clouds of tiny flying insects that follow your head around for a few seconds and get into your nose, eyes, ears. That's one major drawback to warmer weather: bugs. I'm not skittish about spiders or things (and they make great toys for Charlie, my cat), but I find mosquitoes and biting flies very irritating. I want to bite them back!
