This is getting like winter- always ten days away. :lol:

I haven't noticed hardly anything here. Maybe a hole or 2 but that's it. Either it's a bust or they're going to surprise me.

Patience, y'all. They will be here soon. :)

Ahhhh, Depeche Mode. You're bringing back the memories of working the DJ graveyard shift at the college radio station (the shift nobody wanted!), serving up all of those awesome alternative/new wave tunes from the 80s. Also, never heard of the Silversun Pickups, but good tune...so thanks!  :D 

Many, many emergence holes around my property...have seen a few holes in surrounding blocks...but haven't actually seen any nymphs or heard any of the adults yet.

This is definitely late vs. 2004. I finished finals the second week of May 2004 at UMBC and they had already been swarming around everywhere. People I know in central MD, southern PA and western OH haven't seen much of anything.

Don't worry, the WAA piece is drying up but the transfer to the coast will save us.  Euro said so.

Yeah, I kind of remember them starting relatively early here in the DC metro area, like early May in 2004.  But I also recall that year was very warm in April/May so perhaps that's part of the reason.  They also "ended" sooner, like not long after Memorial Day weekend, in early June.  This year, I think it's been cooler leading into this month overall (i.e., more "normal"), so maybe that's been what's going on?  I thought the normal time was mid-May to mid-June, there about.

There's definitely a cicada sex joke to be made here...

17 years of living under the ground, followed by 3 weeks of singing and mass fornication...

Sounds like typical spring break time in Florida!! :lol:
