    …as normal as herds of buffalo or flocks of passenger pigeons that took three days to pass a given point.

    It might not happen every day, or every year. But animals, well, do stuff.

    “known for its massive colonies and ‘sheet webs” might suggest a genesis for an explanation (add unusual wind / tornado scenario etc.)

    Glad to see you in a more “relaxed” forum Mr. Coleman.

    The “rain” of spiders reminds me of other strange rains of frogs, fish, birds and bits of flesh reported around the world. The “flesh rain” was supposedly caused by flocks of buzzards vomiting their food onto farmlands they passed over. After a tornado passed through Chattanooga, Tennessee a few years ago, it “rained” bits of paper and insulation all across an area in Western North Carolina 200 miles to the Northeast some hours later.

    You never really know what may drop in your in yard someday.
