I grew up in a big city and lived for a long time in a nice suburb, and I remember worms. Thousands of worms on the streets and sidewalks after a big
rainstorm. You couldn't walk on the sidewalks without stepping on some, no matter how hard you tried. I haven't seen anything like that in many years.
Nothing even close, almost no worms at all in fact.
After it rained they'd also be popping themselves out of the ground, and as mean kids we'd grab some out, but never hurt them intentionally.
And remember nighthawks? The small birds that flocked around streetlights catching bugs? Haven't seen them do that in many years.
And something everyone can relate to. When you left lights on at night, with a screen door open, dozens of moths and beetles and other things would
land on the screen or on the porch. And Junebugs, there used to be Junebugs. Not for a long time.
Does this relate with anyone else? Nothing to do about it, except to say that things like these keep getting less and less, and I'm not ancient
although out of my twenties. So you teens, take note of the butterflies, and the snakes (well, there are almost no more snakes and frogs, at least as
common as prairieland. What? Never mind). They may not come this way again.
