The gnat line is real.
The gnat line is an imaginary line in Georgia spanning from Columbus, to Macon, to Augusta. This boundary is where the Georgia clay turns sandy, a conducive environment for gnats.
Yesterday, I stopped for gas while passing through Colquitt, Georgia. Immediately a host of gnats greeted me with their warm southern accent and obsession with proximity. My northern roots weren’t so hospitable to these friendly pest. I watched others around me pumping gas undisturbed from the little guys. I guess you just get used to it. Not a place I’d like to spend a considerable amount of time. I prefer my eyes, mouth and ears gnat free.
