An unpleasant storm of fauna news

From 538 Significant Digits:

4.63 inches of rain

Las Vegas has experienced 4.63 inches of rain this year, well above its typical 2.38 inches. This has occasioned a grasshopper invasion in the desert. On weather radar, it appeared that there were two storms over the city: one was an actual storm, and the other was the “massive hordes of grasshoppers” that have recently made Sin City their new, damp home.

Sin City? biblical plague? That was too easy. Meanwhile, I’m staying in New York.
