But not standing water features. This pool of water here is likely to provide enough breeding grounds for mosquitos to menace Brightwood, Petworth, Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant. If not more. I don’t know if folks are hit by mosquitos as bad as I am but this sight terrifies me. I’d say we have like 2 weeks left before I can’t sit on the porch without showering myself in Deet or skinsosoft. True story – I once put so much skinsosoft on that I couldn’t open the door to get back in I was so greased up.

Anyway, a friend of mine told me that in Berkeley, CA you will actually get fined for having a pool of water on your property. Maybe we should institute something similar here?
