Well, it's apparently time for the 17 year Cicada here in our parts. The kids were out back playing freeze tag (frozen catchers is what we called it in my day) yesterday morning and I heard them shout out "look at all the Cicadas everywhere!" Needless to say I headed outside with my camera in hand. The last time I experienced this we were living in the Nashville, Tennessee area - this was prior to the HubbaBrood. I guess that was around 1997 or 1998. I remember Cicadas being everywhere even inside the office buildings in downtown Nashville. People would be knocking them off as they rode the elevator to their office. The house we were living in at the time had a lot of trees out back and the sound of the Cicadas was almost deafening. It's going to be a fun summer.
Check out this site called CicadaMania.com for some really neat Cicada footage and information. I'm thinkin' about gettin' a Cicada t-shirt.
