I was driving in Brick yesterday and every time I stopped the car, I saw a swarm of gnats.

When I got to Point Pleasant, it was more of the same. I was trying to do some yard work and they were absolutely everywhere! I couldn't even stand outside. They were in my face, on my arms and everywhere I looked, there were a hundred more of them.

I seem to remember this from years past, but this year it seems to be a lot worse, just like everything else this year. I was worried about he cicadas, which never really showed up in my town, but nobody warned me about the great 2013 gnat invasion!
