Heat waves have been rolling across the country all week and West Nile infected mosquitos have been spotted everywhere. Yep, we have reached the time of year where it is actually unsafe to go outside. So don’t go wandering the streets or hitting the beach against medical advice. Instead stay safe and cool on your couch.
