    WISCONSIN B*TCHES!

    Oh, uh nevermind....

    http://www.wltx.com/story/life/2014/...ties/12985215/

    The La Crosse, Wis. office of the National Weather Service (NWS) says this year's mayfly hatch on the Mississippi River was so prolific that it created a bow echo on radar, similar to one that would be made by a significant rain storm. A NWS employee went out after his shift and captured some amazing images of the short-lived pests covering street lights, gas pumps, buildings, stairs -- nearly anything in their path.

    The mayfly hatch was a problem up and down the Mississippi. Police in the town of Trenton say a large hatch of mayflies may have triggered a three-vehicle crash on a Wisconsin road.

    The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the road had become slick from the mayflies Sunday evening, causing at least one of the drivers involved in the crash to lose control of her vehicle. They also said visibility was limited at the time of the crash due to the massive cloud of mayflies in the air.

    Two people were injured in the crash but only one person was taken to a local hospital.

    The good news in all of this is that the onslaught doesn't last long: the life of an adult mayfly lasts only from a few hours to a few days.

    It's actually a good thing - means the Mississippi river is doing well - in years past, some of the towns around there have to use snow plows to remove them.

    FUUUUUK!

    I seen that shlt in Tupelo Mississsippi area way back one summer doing this traveling door to door all-purpose cleaner sales job... Any door you opened these fvcking things were flying in your face and down your back and shlt.. FUKING HORRIBLE!!
    In the motel room there was a designated cat that would be on swatting duty for anytime someone had to open the door. You'd have to kill at least 30 for ever lightning fast door open/close.


    Bottom line, it fvcking SUCKED! And it was damn hotter than a tijuana whooweh too. What a shlt hole.

    The gas station was the most fvcked up thing. Fvcking miserable.

    This was a good reason to stop after the 13 original colonies.

    Yeah, you'll have a ton of bloated fish and birds everywhere unable to eat any more of these guys. Spiders, mantis', any predator will be gorged.
    It is a good sign for the Mississippi.
