Yeah, they're everywhere. Have been for several days. Yesterday, I drove through a swarm of them on our street, then got out of my car and walked through another swarm of them.

I wouldn't worry about it. They know how to get out of the way. There are millions of them making the normal migration from the dry deserts of Mexico to the Cascade range in the Pacific Northwest. The population is outsized this year because of abundant rain and a cooler February, which kept the plants from drying out. An adult butterfly typically only lives a couple of weeks. Their flight north is typically made up of multiple generations, with a butterfly going a certain distance, then laying eggs. Its brood will hatch and continue north. Pretty amazing!
I walked outside just now and saw hundreds of them fly by, all in the same direction.

Katisha, I dare not hope for your love – but I will not live without it! Darling!

Season (north of Florida anyway):

winter
fool's spring
road construction (endless)
second winter
spring of deception
third winter
mud season
actual spring
summer
false fall
second summer (1 week)
actual fall

Forecast says otherwise, regardless of what the calendar says.
