Yesterday morning I took a branch off one of the beautiful oak trees in our new back yard to be examined by the staff at Millcreek Gardens. I had noticed a particularly large amount of puffy, green nodules on the branches that seemed to be killing the trees.
Tonight as we were driving home we ran into what I believe was an indignant group of these ferocious little beasts. I was on the phone with my brother Matt, when were attacked. Thousands of the winged creatures began pelting the car as we stopped at our local gas station. They were literally raining from the sky like some cliched 1960s creature flick. I could hear Jason screaming as he quickly pumped a couple gallons in the car. We got out of there as quickly as possible.
