Entomology has been a fascination for me since I was little. People along the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana can tell you about the little black "love bugs" (Plecia nearctica, it has its own Wikipedia entry!). Back in the 90's, there was one year here in San Antonio when there were so many of a certain butterfly that they would die and look like autumn leaves as you drove down the street. Incredible. But it only lasted a day or two, then it was over.
I seem to recall that a certain specie(s) of ant "takes flight" at a certain time of the year. How much seasonal weather contributes I don't know. But I have witnessed the same thing you're seeing. With similar response.

a nice read: http://www.eeel.nist.gov/817/pubs/sp...lightening.pdf

it discusses a rackmounted audio system in one of the case reports about lightning damage.

just goes to show you that during a lightning storm, ground loops can pose a serious hazard.
