Lots of eastern equine virus activity is confirmed in Massachusetts, with of course, Wareham, having that virus!
Wareham, is where I was spending nights in a tiny house, in very-late-August, 2008, and was rightly super-scared when in the tiny house at night!  Shocked  Mad Sad  

On this date in 2008, I was walking in P-town! (unfortunately, the SD camera video was lost!) 

More suspicious, is a major-level report, for a spot not too far from Greenfield, Massachusetts!
I was at the Applebee's there.
I just hope a mosquito didn't bite me!  Shocked Mad Sad

This is a terrible year for vector-borne illnesses due to the wet wet spring/summer and proliferation of mosquitos!  

Your health department is probably monitoring for this; I know ours is for West Nile, so you can get online and see what’s going on!  

Don’t forget your bug repellant!

I think we need more 90-degree days with sun, that usually makes mosquitoes go away, in my experience.

Cool and wet years like 2006 and 2011 are why the mosquito populations exploded!

I never saw a mosquito come at me with 90-degree sunshine!

I'm already so paranoid about ticks and mosquitoes, this has me looking forward to the first hard frost. Mosquitoes in seven towns in CT have tested positive, but no human cases. Two horses have had to be euthanized. But CT is small, and the border of MA isn't far off from anywhere here. And of course, the ever present threat of Lyme disease is always lurking. I know way too many people who've had to deal with that.
I'm gonna have to get a hazmat suit!  silly me

IIRC, I've heard of "WEE" before and I'm not sure if even that one is as bad as "EEE".

In the west, there would ironically usually be a death from the West Nile virus, even when the West Nile virus isn't known to be as deadly as the eastern equine virus.

Has there been a lot of mosquitoes on your property?

I can already imagine what the normally-rainy parts of California are like, such as San Rafael, San Francisco and Redding.
IIRC, I got word from here (I think it was CN!) that Redding got more T-showers than expected. That's where CN lives!

The eastern equine virus warning has been extended, because of cloudy and showery weather.

More wet weather forecasted, thus the warning has been extended! I also saw mosquitoes today flying to the windows, at least one of them to a nearby window at the Concord, New Hampshire Applebee's! Another that looked tiny for a mosquito, flying up to the driver-side window of the 2018 Jeep Compass, when my father was at the closest gas station in North Springfield, Vermont, to get drinks! Shocked Mad Sad

People, this is why I cancelled any plans of going to Springfield, Massachusetts! (That other Springfield, LOL!  rofl )
