After all that rain a couple of weeks ago, I’ll bet you noticed the weird insect invasion that seemed to take over Goliad immediately afterward.

The giant, ant-like things were absolutely everywhere, either lying on the ground dead or busily digging holes in the newly moistened earth. Some of them had wings while others didn’t, and there were large ones as well as small ones. I took a good look at them, and couldn’t help wondering “what the heck are those things?” I’m willing to bet lots of other folks were thinking the same thing.
