Grasshoppers in November

Jack and I went out to wander today, and I was amazed that a) it is November and 65 degrees, and b) there are a million grasshoppers all over the place. Maybe these are a hardier breed than the ones I grew up with, but I thought grasshoppers were long gone by this time of year. As we went hiking in the foothills behind our house they were jumping with every step we took so it felt like we work walking through popping popcorn. It was great to get out and enjoy the sun and the outdoors though, so I guess there (sorta) is an upside to global warming.
