Spraying Tonight

A city version of crop dusting will take place in Preston Hollow this evening to battle those pesky mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus. Weather permitting, the City of Dallas will spray the neighborhood this evening at 10:00 and conclude by 3:00 a.m.

As I child, I rode my bike down the middle of the street behind the trucks that sprayed the Air Force base where we lived. We loved zipping through the white fog of pesticide. It was probably clouds of DDT they were spraying and its amazing we're still alive and our kids don't have 3 heads.
Today's chemicals are probably safer. But I'll be locked up inside just the same.
