The other thing that occurs to me as I drive lately is the remarkable lack of bugs. Remember when the windshield would be just peppered with dead bugs? There seemed to be swarms, and gas station attendants had to work to remove the dried-on bug guts. I doubt that bugs are smarter now (avoiding the highways)...so, has modern pest control reduced their numbers that drastically? Whew.
Addendum: Remember how the screen door used to be a fly-roost when we were kids? "Close the door or the flies'll come in!" I've seen swarms of tiny gnats this summer, but only one fly here in the house. Wow, things are changing.
