They’re here …

My mother-in-law’s back yard has been completely overrun by cicadas. Walking down the steps from the deck to the yard was quite an experience, though I can honestly say they were more scared of me than I was of them.

Of course, I know there’s nothing to “fear” from cicadas. Stepping on one of these guys or banging into them is just a cringe-inducing experience, much like scraping your nails on a blackboard. It’s just that I can’t picture a situation in which I might be walking down the street and then, randomly, I scrape my nails on a blackboard. Cicada-crunching, though, can happen at any time.

We’re not in bad shape right now at Casa Dure. Just a couple out front and a few swarms making noise in the distance.
