I was out for a hike today and I witnessed something odd: as the sun was dipping toward the horizon I began seeing, back lit by the afternoon sun, several clouds of insects. In late December. In Michigan?
I wandered into a couple of the clouds of insects expecting them to be mosquitoes since this is Michigan after all; they weren't mosquitoes, and I am not sure what they were. This time last year there was snow on the ground. Snow... that's what I should be seeing in late December in Michigan, not newly hatched swarms of bugs! It's crazy, and I am afraid it is a harbinger of things to come.
