    This Hoosier has enjoyed this summer’s cooler and wetter weather as compared to the more normal hot and dry of most of those past. On the up side of the cooler weather has been a noticeable reduction in mosquitoes. Why? I have no idea. On the down side the July evenings when lightning bugs come out in droves to blink their mating calls was depressed somewhat this year. Again, I have no idea why.
