A cloud of midges is even showing up on the radar.
Updated (enhanced) radar picture over greater Cleveland. I've had a report of rain in one area and a report of "a lot of bugs" in another area. If you are seeing rain, or bugs, or birds... let me know! pic.twitter.com/tQPMurDw1u
Midges do have a purpose and they are a sign of good health for Lake Erie. Midges are hatched from the lake when the water warms up in the spring. They provide food for fish and other aquatic life, according to the Lake County General Health District.
