Invasion # 1 – NanoPoblano – Day 29

Have you ever been in the middle of an invasion? In this case a better word might be a swarm.

This is what happened…

It was so weird. One afternoon a friend from elementary school, and I, were playing outside in the front yard. She lived a couple of houses down from us, and we were always outside finding things to do. We heard the music of the ice cream truck that came by every afternoon. It was a new kind of truck, in that they offered soft serve ice cream cones, along with the usual frozen Popsicles.

We each bought an ice cream cone, and were walking back to my front yard, when all of a sudden a swarm of moths came flying by. They were some sort of moths, but we just called them candle bugs, or millers. It seemed there were millions of them. They were landing in our hair, on us, and even got stuck in our ice cream.

We were screaming as we ran for the house. My mom was busy closing all the windows, but it didn’t do much good, as those moths got inside anyway. They were around the area for days, and mom would keep sweeping them up from the porch, from the bath tub, and the sink in the kitchen. She’d even use the vacuum to suck them up, but they’d crawl back out of the vacuum hose, unless it was stopped up with a rag.

Finally, it was over, and there were no more invading moths. I’ll never forget it, though.

Coming up, I’ll tell about two other invasion/swarms I’ve been witness to. 🙂

This is a moth, but the ones that swarmed us that day were just dark gray.
