This is something I’ll never get used to…

Fish flies.  I know I’ve mentioned them before, probably numerous times.  I despise these creatures.  We’ve lived on this side of town and near Lake St Clair for going on eight years now.  Up until we’ve lived in our current house, I’ve found them to be a nuisance but was able to deal with them. We didn’t get too many around the houses we’ve lived in, but they were always all over anything with lights.  So going to the gas station or the drive through ATM was always an adventure. Now that we live down the street from the lake, I see how bad it really is. Millions of them, and they’ll land on everything they can…including people. Most locals usually laugh and joke about them being the area’s mascot and go about their business.  I must be a sight squealing and running from my car to the house.

Just to give you an idea of what I see when I look out the window…

They aren’t small either.  That dark thing is my finger to show their size.

What my car looks like right now…

Closer up…

Ack!  The locals say that they are a sign that the lake is healthy.  I don’t know, I think they’re crazy! I’ll never get used to living among them.
