August 7, 2000: Ann writes: I so enjoyed sitting out on my Cousin Rosella's veranda in Bluefield, West Virginia, of the evening with the magical glow of the fireflies sparkling and twinkling in the tall grasses! They are so enchanting to watch and gives one a feeling of magic in the air, of dancing fairies and dreams that really could come true. They evoke feelings of such fancifulness and I would give anything if they were here at McChord!


June 11, 2005: A reader reports: I just saw the first firefly of the year in Morgantown, West Virginia! They always remind me of my childhood days of catching them in the yard. Of course, I always released them! The sighting was of one lone firefly in a neighbors tree right in the middle of Morgantown. It's a very humid evening, with about 77 degrees at 1:00am on June 11, 2005.

West Virginia:

August 6, 2000: A reader reports: I wish you luck in your hopes of bringing back the firefly to Houston. I was recently in West Virginia and so enjoyed the fireflies in the evening. The are enchanting to watch. I wish you well and commend you on your plan!
