Grasshopper Plague of 1874 - Without warning millions descended on the prairies, arriving in swarms so large they blocked out the sun and sounded like a rainstorm. Crops were eaten out of the ground and wool off of live sheep and clothing off of people's backs. My grandmother remembers a relatives hat being eaten off of his head. They were several inches deep on the ground. They would stay 2 days to a week and left as they had come.
