Need to Vent

i have never had THAT MANY ticks get on me. I thought they were bad here but that’s BAD. I really thought ticks couldn’t survive the extreme cold of the north. Learned something today.
It's been a while since they've been that bad. The dry years have really knocked them back. When we used to get 5-8" of rain every two weeks all through the growing season, you even walked the lawn, you'd have them crawling on me. Thankfully, we don't have any of the super awful ticks up by us. Just plain old wood ticks and deer ticks, and the deer ticks aren't all that prevalent.
