Back in the late seventies I saw a tent caterpillar population boom. It was up on Bala Park Island. There were millions upon millions everywhere. Unless you swept them away they'd easily cover half the dock. At night you could hear them fall off the trees and on the roof. We had it on good information from people with memories that it was a cyclical phenomenon that occurred every ten years or so. It lasted for about a week, then they were gone.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, I wonder how such a thing would be taken today?

Harp glissando, picture goes all twisty....
