    People are freaking out here. It's like a ghost town around five p.m. No one goes out after dusk.

    Here in Tx we're triple worried. We've had periodic outbreaks of St Louis Encephalitis for decades now. Along with West Nile, we're getting skeeters harboring Dengue Fever coming up from Mexico. Its getting so ya don't wanna go outside without a HazMat suit
