I have yet to see any nettles this year at Gratitude. Last year and previous years I saw a lot by mid-summer.
Thanks Donna, that's exactly what I was hoping for...some real life observations.

What surprised me about NOAA's "forecast" is it indicates very low probability of nettles south of the bridge and high probabilities well north of the bridge. So, that leaves me wondering about the value of the "forecast." (It does show the area around Gratitude on light blue...low probability. So, they got that right.) Or whether I misunderstand conventional wisdom on nettles. (Always a distinct possibility.)
