This is the nastiest thing I've seen in a while.  An officer gets out of his squad car near the Savanna/Sabula bridge to assist in...hopefully in some sort of ritual to get rid of these ungodly creatures.

Shadflies!  Gross!
Before he exits his car, he radios to get DOT to help with the conditions of the road... which he describes as "like ice".
That's right...the squishy bugs were creating slippery conditions for the vehicles on the bridge.
