And I thought black flies and mosq when in MN in June and when sharing "horde" stories with a guy in the UP were bad to say nothing of deer flies now here at home. Of course, I've read about this, but a picture is worth a lot of buzz.

What a nightmare!

I have to admit that is considerably worse than the worst mosquito clouds I've ever experienced in the Sierra Nevada (Cow Meadow Lake, Emigrant Wilderness, El Nino year) which was quite epic.  Rabbits there are probably dying of starvation because they are too afraid to come out of their burrows.    Even Usain Bolt if wearing shorts and t-shirt that ran out of gas 5 miles from civilization would probably end up dead looking like a prune before reaching that town.
