We have had sunshine and clear skies since we arrived, although we understand that the previous days—weeks, even—were rainy. We could see coming around Lake Michigan/Green Bay that Lake Michigan is high(er), and that creeks and rivers we crossed were full—not over-flowing, but there is also standing water in fields and forests.
The equation here that extended wet periods, especially in spring/early summer translates into insects. This type: fine; skeeters, not so happy-making. [Deliberately not mentioning ticks—haven’t seen one yet.]
