Default The Locusts Are Coming; The Loco Locusts Are Coming

What is the date for this onslaught anyway?


The onslaught of cicadas (not locust - locusts are of the grasshopper
family) has already started in southern Indiana. We saw the first mass
Thursday, with more arriving every day. They are such cool inssects! I am
having so much fun, although I can't mow the grass (my husband will be
doing that) because I can't bring myself to purposely hurt them.
