I was talking to a friend in Ridgewood New Jersey last week and it sounded like a truck was driving by his house. He was shouting into the phone and said he couldn’t hear anything but the invasion of Cicadas. Every 17 years they come out of the ground hook up, croak and the survivors return to the ground to wait another 17 years hoping that they will get lucky next time.
I’ve been waiting for their nvasion but so far no big deal. It has been raining a lot and that may have something to do with it but this weekend is supposed to be warm and sunny and we are going to a wedding at a neighbor’s house. I’ll let my readers know if they have an invasion of unwanted guests.
Below are two pictures one before and one after the hors d’oevres.
