No, not more flies than ususal. This is August and it's time for the summer rains. Rain means puddles of water. Puddles equals fly nurseries.
Here's my question - especially for those born in burque: what happened to our frogs? I remember that during this time of year all those puddles (now filled with flies) also had frogs who dined on them. I remember the valley had frog choruses everywhere at night. Something bad is happening with Albuquerque loosing all its frogs. So far I've only seen one hold out in my mom's garden and he seems rather lonely.
So yes, the flies abound but its not because of the State Fair. Its that we have lost our frogs.
