    I'd like to give them a try. But alas, there are no cicadas here in New Mexico, just 10000000000 flies.

    We usually have plenty of them here in Nevada. They're really loud, but unless I'm standing right in the middle of a ton of them, I don't hear them because they sound exactly like the ringing in my ears.

    I don't think I'll be eating them anytime soon. Just not that adventurous.

    So this is the first I've ever heard of these things. It's pretty horrific that we're about to be overrun. East Coast about to be overrun by billions of cicadas - CBS News

    My cat loves them.
    I'm not that primal.

    I think there are two different broods for them in the DC area. I was living in NOVA from 03-08 and we had them in like '05. I heard them mentioned a couple weeks ago and I think they said this was cycle B.

    I've looked for the Cicadas everyday this week but still haven't found any yet... I'll keep looking for a couple more weeks or so. Hopefully someone further north may pick up on this and give them a try.

    The brood may not have surfaced yet although today was pretty warm, and it's possible that the ground temp reached 64 degrees.

    Knew somebody from West Virginia who told me that one spring the cicadas were so thick his dog was just eating 'em left and right and gained 10 lbs.
