Here in Nashville, it is the 13 year invasion of the highly annoying cicada. You can't go outside without getting them in your hair or crunching them underfoot. Of course, you won't hear them crunch too much over their noise. Click on this link to hear the chorus and imagine stepping outside and having that surround you. Or, you can go here to hear some individuals.
My daughter is fascinated with their castoff shells. She has jars of them. She insists on keeping them in her room. I am less than thrilled.
Give them a week and we will be sweeping piles of them off our decks. As we regain our sense of hearing, we'll all take a deep breath and boast about our trials and tribulations for another 13 years until once again the little beasts come out to
SING, MATE, and DIE.
Not my video, but it is exactly what we are dealing with.
