Having had WNV I can speak for us who have had it, it blows! Flu-like symptoms minus the URI part. Very strange. Shakes, fever and body aches. I was sick for a week straight. Awful. Not to mention that I'm in my late 20's. I live in Dallas. They said today that 30% of the mosquitoes tested carried the disease. Ugh!!
It's a good thing that's all you had. There are now 41 deaths in the country and over 1100 infected. That is 4 times more infected for this time of year. It is becoming the largest outbreak the US has ever seen.
I live in the Dallas area, too. I got careless the other day and didn't spray my feet so now I have several mosquito bites on them that itch like crazy!
