Dave!The weather started out hot with blue skies today. I know this because I saw it with my own two eyes when I went out to lunch.

Around 5:00 it started raining. Hard.

This killed what little ambition I had to go out for dinner, so I decided to just keep working in my room. Since I had a packet of Chips Ahoy! cookies, I knew I wouldn't starve. "On the positive side, maybe the rain will make the cicadas shut up and I can fall asleep easier tonight," I thought to myself.

But then the rain stopped around 8:30 and the cicadas came out louder than ever. Boy am I glad that these noisemakers haven't made it up to Washington State yet.

So now I'm going to try and fall asleep knowing that Walking Dead zombies AND thousands of creepy bugs are screeching to get inside and eat my face off.

Because I'm just that delicious.

Bleh. Now I'm hungry. I guess a packet of cookies can only do so much.

What I need right now is an off switch.

    Having grown up down south cicadas were just kind of white-noise machines for us and would ‘sing’ us to sleep.

    Georgia is dangerous!

  3. If you grow up with cicadas you kind of miss them.

    I remember listening to them every night in the summer as a kid. Of course they tend to live in regions I don’t like to live (hot & humid) so I can stand to miss them.
