Re: Bug Storm?

Dont you like the way they 'liquify' when they hit the windscren and 'bake' on after a second rendering the wipers useless at cleaning the screen only making streakes of mushed up bugs.

lmao.. Maybe he was trying to dodge them..
Those bugs always come out this time of year and with the lights we have at work there must have been tens of thousands of them. It seems their purpose in life is to fly around till their wings fall off and then attempt to fly again. Just glad i wasn't driving thru them. (In Adelaide)
