I hope no one here lives in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

I think you took over the role of Haggart.

Interesting. Apparently not a big thing where I live -- but, I'll pay attention.

It isn't a big thing anywhere, there is hardly any overlap between the two broods. And I can't even recall the last cicada I saw.... in the numerous emergences I have lived through. I doubt I would notice if the doubled... or tripled

Cicadas are awesome. And so are katydids. They provide my favorite sound of summer in the South, emerging every July around my birthday. smile

I love sitting on my back porch in the forest, hearing them surge in tone, left and right. I'll miss that in the desert. They are LOUD in Georgia.

My dad and I were driving through Tennessee in 2015 when that swarm emerged. There were so many of the damned things at one of the rest stops that it was hard to walk without crunching.

I'm in Due West SC working. I have never heard anything like these cicadas. It is unnerving.

I like hearing them too and they do get very loud. I've got tinnitus to some degree. I'm not sure how bad compared to others but it does get distressing and though I do like it the sound of cicadas when they are at their loudest kind of reminds me of the sound of severe tinnitus screaming away in the inner ear. I heard a song bird the other day though that had such a gentle and pleasing call that it was almost tinnitus healing or soothing in its quality.

I would not be down 20 pounds since January 1 eating loaded baked potatoes.

I dropped 19 pounds following jaw surgery. I can't say that I heartily recommend it though.

These videos do not quite do justice to how loud these things were today. It really became a bit annoying after a few hours of the constant droning on and on.

I thought the "calling the cops" story was ridiculous until I heard them myself. Now I can understand how some people, elderly folks for example, could be bewildered by the noise.

The incessant droning of cicadas in Due West SC has not subsided for a week... I am on the verge of striping off my clothes and running naked and screaming across the Erskine College campus.
