¡¡ FIXED !! The post below went up a few days ago. Today I showed up at the gym to see this long-standing puddle emptied and dry. This has me wondering if a friend or reader maybe contacted the right desk with the city – or perhaps somebody with the city reads my blog? Whatever the case, I’m grateful. Wow! Original post:
The city has done a superb job this year controlling mosquitoes. But there is still room for improvement – witness the persistent puddle above, and many like it around town – leaking from the municipal water supply.
I know a Canadian couple who didn’t winter here this year because their experience with intense mosquito pressure last year was so great that they decided not to come. But friends have commented to me that this year has been a season of few bites. The city should be proud. (And now somebody should get busy sealing this leak!)
