  1. I'm hoping to see some cicada recipes from you in the other thread!!
  2. wet snow globs mixing in with rain in Towson
  3. They thrive in older neighborhoods with lots of trees. I remember in 2004 going out at dusk, running my hand along the ivy under a maple tree and having an entire hand full with no effort at all. Love when they emerge out of the ground before molting!
  4. We deserve it! We paid our dues! Make it happen!!
  5. Now this is a thread I can sink my teeth into!! I actually think the brood of cicadas is one of the most amazing natural wonders in our area. I remember graduating from high school in 1987 with an outdoor graduation. The weather was beautiful, but people in the audience actually put umbrella's up thinking it would keep the cicadas away from their did not work. The sound they were making was so loud you could barely hear the speakers. I graduated from a private school where we all wore white tuxedo's, not gown and cap, so the buggers were easy to spy on all of our white tuxes. I thought it was awesome! Will never forget my high school graduation, that's for sure! Then the next time they appeared, I had 2 young children. My wife and I decided we would enter the realm of trying to eat the bugs! Stir fried cicadas, cicada bread, and cicada cookies are a few of the things we tried. I remember convincing my 4 year old that they would be great to eat. She ate them and seemed to really enjoy them. My 2 year old would have nothing of it! She gave an angry face and spit them out. In all honesty, I found them to be bitter and not worth the effort of eating them. A little too earthy tasting for me, but now that I am 17 years older, and my taste buds are almost all dead, I may just have to try them again. Can't wait to see a deeper covering of bugs than many of our snow events this year
  6. I know it's the RGEM and all, but it has had a Baltimore Bulls-Eye for at least 4 runs in a row now. Did Baltimorewx bribe the Canadians?
  7. Watch this lame threat become our biggest snow fall of the year....LOL
  8. RGEM = Baltimore Bulls Eye!!
  9. Rule of Ji: "The model that gives the least snow always wins!" Looks like Euro want to win this time.
  10. I still need to look at this chart. My memory is not good, so it helps to look at the chart when I forget.
  11. They need one of those graphics for days 1-2 to clear up confusion.
