The con is near the water and is quite open aired, so you get a nice breeze.  Try being in Manhattan in July.

Whew, thank goodness.

Do I need to slap on insect repellent though? Does San Diego have mosquitoes or annoying flies in the summer?

San Diego is not tropical like Singapore.  There is very little in terms of biting insects.  I only get bitten maybe once or twice a year.  It's too dry and the city is very aggressive in educating people on the mosquito dangers of having stagnant water after the infrequent rains.  I walk around the yard and overturn anything with water in it.

I miss the food courts in Singapore.  I wish we had those here.

Fourth Comic-Con this year and I'm coming from New Jersey this time! Last year I flew in from Virginia, so it will be a little bit of a longer flight haha. Anyone else coming from NJ?

I'm coming in for New Jersey, also.  This will be my 11th year.

Nah. You want sunscreen. Not bug repellent.

I know I said it's not a problem in a previous post, but this week I've been bitten four times all on my feet.  I've had to give up flip flops for now and wear shoes for the protection.  I kill 1 or 2 mosquitoes a night in the house.  Still nothing compared to SEA.

Thanks for the update. I'm still bringing it either way. I've always been prone to being bit so it doesn't hurt to be safe than sorry. ;)

It was on the local news today that it's one of the worst mosquitoes season in years.

Darn it  >:( :(
I don't watch the news so I haven't been following mosquito problems.  I've lived in San Diego since July 1999 and I've never been bitten by a mosquito in San Diego; I can't say for certain, but I don't recall ever even seeing a mosquito in San Diego before.  This report bums me out, even if the situation is still radically better than where I moved from (OH).

Where do you live?  I live/teach a bit inland and I haven't seen any mosquitos (I teach HS band, and didn't hear of any student or staff getting bitten by mosquitos where we're at, at least).
Bummed if this will be a bad mosquito season
