As some of you may know, I currently live outside of Richmond, VA. My back yard borders a forest, and one of the things I enjoy is watching the fireflies put on their 'show' every summer in the evening, usually beginning around the last two weeks in May. Well, we are now in June, and so far I have yet to see even one of these little guys lighting up the evenings. I know we had a pretty harsh 'polar vortex' winter, but I grew up in Michigan, where the winters were far more harsh, and we still had fireflies every summer. I'm posting this message here on 4042 because I'm curious to know if this is just a local anomoly, or is this a more widespread situation. Is anyone in Johnston County seeing fireflies yet, or does it seem like these guys are (for some reason) absent this year?
