When I bought my house here in vegas, the lawn had not been well taken care of, looked to be nearly dead. Just to see what would happen I fixed the sprinkers, set them on a new timer left it to go a month while we prepared for the move.
When I came back I was shocked to find nearly waist high grass. Who knew adding a little water to desert sand would yield so much growth?? So I immediately went out to buy a lawnmower and set about to cut it all down to a manageable size.
About a quarter of the way through the mowing, I started to feel an insane series of bites... I looked down at my legs to find them crawling with little red ants biting me all over. Hurt like hell.
Needless to say, it took me quite a while to get up the nerve to finish that chore.
