Where are all the Lightening Bugs this year?
Some call them lightening bugs, June bugs, fire flies - I'm just wondering where they've all gone? Here in the midwest we start seeing them by the end of June and they continue thru the month of July. But I notice a lack of them this year. Could it have something to do with the 17 Year Cicada's we had here last month? I always loved sitting outside and watching them twinkle after the sun set, but this year, I can count them on one hand. Oh well, I just hope Global warming isn't to blame. Do kids still collect them in jars with lids that have been punched with holes? If so, I hope they do like I did and set them free before they retire for the evening.
