Be warned they are coming
Petworth has many positive attributes as I have recited many a time. However, for those who are new to the neighborhood let me offer you a warning. In about 4 to 6 weeks you are about to be introduced to the most annoying creature on earth. No I am not talking about the PoP. At the end of June beginning of July the mosquitoes shall descend. I've never quite understood why, but they are particularly fierce in Petworth. So trust me, buy some bug spray. And I am not talking about any organic bug spray, I'm talking about the kind that melts your clothes if it gets in contact. Learn about Deet. Deet will become your best friend over July and August. Trust me. And don't waste your money on citronella candles, these mosquitoes simply fly around the little flame and sometimes you can actually hear them laughing at you. I've just learned Yahoo offers a mosquito forecast here. It is worthless, remember only one thing - Deet is your friend.
