Something to make you scratch https:/…midges-swarm-in-argyll
Oh my god......and I'm leaving in a few days. LOL I hope good old regular insect repellent will do.
We don't have midges in NY as far as I know, but they definitely do in Cleveland. About 10 years ago, the Yankees were playing a baseball playoff game against the Indians - in October. Late in the game, the Yankees pitcher got attacked by a swarm of midges (I can't seem to post the photo, so here's the link). The poor guy was ultimately sprayed with bug repellent, which sadly made it worse.... He blew the game, thanks to the midges, lol
Don't worry, . Rain and high winds forecast from midweek, you should be fine.......wet but fine!!
We've just got back from nearly 2 weeks in Scotland and are covered in bites, they do seem to have come early this year :(
If you are the sort who might react to the bites, I'd start taking antihistamine now
Woody, the first few days of next week appear to be ok in Glasgow (Good), but then my tour (Highlands, etc..) starts on Wednesday - is the forecast pretty much for rain throughout the area ? I guess it doesn’t really matter - it is what it is, and with rain/clouds instead of sun,, it’s just a different kind of beauty. I haven’t bothered to check the forecast beyond Wednesday because too much can change. I do hope it won’t be constantly gray and rainy while I’m there, but if it is, I’ll make the best of it. With my fair skin, all sun, all the time would not be good for me, lol.
PLJCK. I hope you had a great time ! No, I’m not allergic - fortunately, because I do have hay fever, and I’m already taking a ridiculous amount of medication to rid myself of my allergies without having to account for bug bites. I’ve never been one to get bitten much by any bugs, so hopefully that will remain the case.
Wow, I checked the forecast for several places and it’s going to be cold and rainy almost all of the time. Bah - so much for nice weather in June, lol. I don’t know whether to cry or laugh, lol. Hopefully it won’t be a constant rain...that’s the UK for you I guess, lol
I'm going June 11-20. Looks like the first couple days will be somewhat dry and then rain afterward. Going to make the most of it either way
