Cicadas are disgusting, mmmmkay?

I don't know if you are aware of it or not, but we are in the middle of a Cicada invasion here in Nashville and throughout most of the south, I think.

They are absolutely CRAZY today, swarming all over like something out of a Hitchcock movie... and so loud. Deafening, really.
