OK. So the first part of the cicada saga was the invasion - crawling up out of the ground and appearing everywhere. The second part was the noise when they started "singing" - which was not just annoying, but got really loud at times! And now the third part . . .
The CARCASSES and the STINK!
Yes, there are dead cicada carcasses everywhere. I've been cleaning them up, but the stink is there, along with the flies. The noise has abated quite a bit, almost overnight. That's good. But I cannot wait until they all go away. I heard we're coming up on that - the end of June. Hope so. That's also when the lightning bugs come out at night. They're a lot nicer to look at. :-)
And I told someone the other day . . . you know that list of questions you want to ask God when you get to heaven . . . add cicadas to my list! Why were they created??
