Australian town blanketed in white, but it's not snow ...

Drought-ridden Australia needs all the rain it can get, but earlier this month something other than precipitation fell from the sky.

Millions of tiny spiders appeared to rain down on a rural town as they "flew" and landed in spider webs as part of a "migration phenomenon," the Goulburn Post reported.

"The whole place was covered in these little black spiderlings and when I looked up at the sun it was like this tunnel of webs going up for a couple of hundred metres into the sky," Ian Watson, a resident of Goulburn, told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Almost two hours outside of Sydney, Australia, Goulburn said the area looked "taken over by spiders."

We get this in Texas too, this was seen around Dallas:

Smile

THOSE spider covered yards and paddocks can look even more nice and spectacular of an early morning, when they're covered in dew or frosts...


       


P.S.   Over 90% of the Australian population lives with 20 km of the coast; 90% of those around the 12 or so major cities and their surrounding suburbs..
MOST of these regions are not [yet] under drought ~ most of the 70+% that is currently drought-declared is inland and rural areas.
