Gnat line

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.
