    The local extension agent estimates 5 billion or so will be crashing into everything starting sometime in May, for at least six weeks. So, how do you cope with this?

    Nature, don't you love her. I suggest earmuffs and goggles.

    Purple goggles and no ear muffs. Think of it as a fee trip to the twilight zone.

    I think we are due in a year or two. The first time I heard them, I was picking up mulch by Otis Airforce Base. I thought a squadron of jets was at the end of the runway getting ready to take off. After a half hour I asked the loader why the jets had not taken off. He explained what it was. I lived and worked about 15 miles away and never saw or heard them.
