Muckleheads from Lake Erie Are Invading!

"Muckleheads" are insects that hatch from Lake Erie in the late spring each year and push inland. They don't bite; they are just an annoyance. I wrote about them a few years ago. Here is the link.

Some video I took this morning of the coating of bugs on the front of the station


This morning, they invaded the front yard!

FOX8 Front yard with bugs on the wall
I won't be calling for help. The muckleheads are invading the intercom!
I can't turn the lights off...
I can't text or email anyone. The muckleheads have hijacked the wi-fi
So what is a weather guy to do? Absolutely nothing but pick the bugs out of one's teeth :)

October 12, 2014 and they are back. Thought this was a spring thing. They drive me nuts and my poor house needs to be washed off again.
