Insects by Common Name

|My brother noticed a large swarm of flying insects all around his house over the Thanksgiving weekend. He lives in northern Indiana. They would fly around and land in the grass. |
They look like chironomids to me although the wings are not long and thin and don't rest horizontally folded over the back. There's a small pond across the street.
Any ideas what they are?

|Bruce - Looks like some kind of Crane Fly. Here's one from Bugguide.|

I have never seen Crane Flies that small or so numerous.
