I inadvertently stepped on a yellow jacket nest on Sunday on my way down to the garden - must have been stung at least 15 times, most on my legs but also on my back and arms. I jumped into the pool to get away from them! It was unbelievably painful, and hurt for several hours. By Monday the pain was mostly but not entirely gone, and it's been itching like mad since then. Even today, Wednesday, my legs still itch, although it's finally subsiding.
