"I heard they will be migrating to cooler areas.  So they should head up to the mountains, though it might take some time."

"My friend said that they came to the city in force in search of water b/c it's too dry in the mountains--is this true?  If so, it's going to be a hot, dry summer.  Which makes me very, very sad."

"Arghhh! Aren't they awful! They are all over the north valley today. Doesn't happen very often. Lived here for 30 years and only remember 1 or 2 times like this. Will go away in a week or so as I remember. Keep doors and windows shut, oh…"
