Years ago, my wife and I were waiting for the ferry. It was a cool night. We had just missed the previous trip and someone said bout 45 minutes for the turnaround. We decided to kill the car and let the windows down..... Bad idea! In about two minutes our car looked like the mosquito tent from the DEEP WOODS OFF commercial. Wonder we didn't die from West Nile. The plan was to stay in Lake Charles that night. We were nearly back to Holly Beach driving with the windows down to get the mosquitoes out. We finally went west and stayed in Nederland TX!
