Killer fungus in the southwest sands... killer fungus in the Pacific Northwest breeze. Decomposing mouse poop in a closed room, and deer ticks in wooded areas.

Sounds like Mother Nature's pissed off.

Don't forget the West Nile Virus and canine heartworm diease carried by the mosquitos, rabies rampant in the local bat population, and plague carried by fleas.

Don't forget the pleasant reminder - "New Mexico, Land of the flea and home of the plague."
And before I'm too far off the topic of windborne Valley Fever: Why is New Mexico so windy? It's because Arizona blows and Texas sucks.

Those of us that have lived here a LONG time know that this virus lives in the desert sands of the southwest---Newcomers from the northeast catch it--and then are immune---no known cure, but why bother?

Hi Jerry, I'm essentially from the southwest. Some days the 'tiz hurts so bad that bathing in hot sands, sounds like it might make me feel better. Then they go and tell me about this here fungus and that notion's blown to hell.(And you might think I'm kiddin'.)
