I’m doing a temporary gig at an office at the moment. This morning I was excited to see a bug on my window.
It’s a cicada. And it’s not actually on my window, it’s on this screen thing that hangs outside my window–I think it’s for shade? Anyway, this cicada thought it was a good place to hang out. I’ve just started hearing them outside in the last few days. Makes it feel like August!
I wrote a story about cicadas the last time the 17-year crowd poked their noisy heads above ground in the D.C. area; scroll to page 13 of this pdf to read it.
