For a while I rode next to the driver on the ledge above the over five foot tall agriculture wheel, just enjoying the cool air and the wonderful fragrance of fresh-cut grass; occasionally talking over the loud hum of the mowing deck we were pulling behind us.

Once the field was nearly done I got down to move my jeep out of the remaining tall grass, I left the windows rolled down and sat parked on the other side of the clearing, out-of-the-way.

I should have rolled up the windows.

Within seconds I noticed the car was swarming with….mosquitoes.

I took off my hat and started swatting at them before I had the presence of mind to roll up the windows as more flying blood suckers came after me. I must have killed ten or more when it was all said and done.

With the windows rolled up I could see hundreds of mosquitoes slamming into the windows, it was a glimpse of a mosquito apocalypse. I rolled the windows up just in time.
