Nuptial Flight Sightings: New York

Decided to create a thread because I never see any threads on New York. Right now, because of the warming arctic, all of the weather patterns are messed up, it's still 40 degrees here and its the middle of April, yet in Alaska they had the warmest December (above average by 20-30 degrees) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQliow4ghtU Anyways, has anybody had nuptial flight sightings yet despite it still being kind of winter? There was this weekend in which it was 70 degree weather down in the city on saturday so if any ants came out, they're probably dead from the cold now

I believe I saw a camponotus queen a couple of nights ago when it was in the 80's. Spotted her in the morning on my way home from work, but unfortunately had nothing on my to catch her. Saw her in the light under my front step. Hope that helps!
