Im sure everyone's heard the warnings that West Nile virus is running rampant this year and starting earlier than ever. My neighbor ( in Lombard) just spent 2 weeks in the hospital with a severe case and the mayor of Lombard just passed away from complications caused by this disease. IDPH is reporting 21 human cases of West Nile virus in Illinois. The first human case of West Nile virus was reported on July 24…. About a month earlier than most human cases in previous ears. There were 34 human cases for the entire year in 2011.
This year there are record levels of West Nile virus activity nationwide and very high mosquito activity in Illinois,” said IDPH Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck. “We urge people to continue to protect themselves by following the three R’s — reduce exposure to mosquitoes, repel them by wearing insect repellent, and report areas where mosquitoes typically breed.”

Limiting our exposure isnt an option for us fishermen, but Load up on the OFF and dont let that water sit around on your boat cover!

just wanted to pass along this link about west nile from the CDC

Sorry to hear about the sick folks. Seems that crap is getting everywhere. The crazy thing is that symptoms can range from:
none to death. A lot of folks just kind of feel crappy for a few days. And may just think it's a cold or something. What gets me is that it can kill a healthy person and not bother someone else who may not be. Bad mojo cover up and spray up folks.
