Yes, Indeed! No laughing, please…

A few weeks ago, we received a never-before-heard-by-us automated phone call – using what Daddy said is called a “reverse-911” system, we were alerted to the fact that our neighborhood was being sprayed for mosquitoes. Between the hours of 9PM and 3AM we were to turn off our air conditioners, close the windows, and keep all our pets inside. … there was a shocked pause in our living room as this news was related. This has never happened here before! But we have had a horrible year with these new zebra-striped Asian Tiger Mosquitoes.

Great. {hear the sarcasm dripping?} So our first thought was that our three outdoor rabbits would have to be brought in overnight (done it twice – once because of extreme heat, and another time because of loose dogs attacking them), but following on it’s heels was a picture of our nice little organic-ish backyard garden covered in chemical residue. Eww. After a short consultation everyone broke off to their individual tasks. Cages were wiped down and prepared for rabbit habitation, newspaper was spread in the kitchen, rabbit food bowls were refilled, AND… tarps were pulled out of the garage. Yes indeed, we are going to protect our garden no matter how difficult they make it! ๐Ÿ˜€

The next morning, I couldn’t resist going out to take some pictures of our strange-looking yard.

The mosquitoes do seem a little more manageable, but we can’t decide which was the greater of two evils: nasty stripey mosquitoes, or disgusting chemical spray.
