I have very happy news to share: The cicadas are almost all dead!!!!! I know this because we have hundreds of cicada carcasses laying on our sidewalk. It’s completely as gross as it sounds, but it does mean that this whole escapade is coming to an end. Finally. When they are completely gone (bodies and all) I’m going to try really hard to be thankful EVERY SINGLE day for the next seventeen years while my life is cicada free.
