  Mike:  It seems the Black Witch event in Port O'Connor was much larger
than I thought...I talked with Henry our postmaster here today and he said
that everyone in town wanted to know about these moths and many thought they
were bats.  He said that on the west side of town over the fields there
which is about 4 miles from Petra's there were Hundreds "maybe Thousands"
flying just after the storm passed.  A fellow that has a boat storage
complex said to me that the boats stalls were full of these moths for a
while.  No one that was in town during and just after the storm failed to
note them it seems.
