Tuesday Open Line

SS mentioned a seeming emergence cicada’s on yesterday’s open lines.  It seems there is a 13 year cycle of cicada’s that are evolving just now.  An article at AccuWeather.com states:  The cicadas will be present during May and June in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Indana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, according to Magicicada.org. While the 13-year cicadas will be present in areas of each of these states, no state will have a statewide occurrence.

Here is a video taken in Durham, NC of cicada’s covering a tree.

These things creep me out.  Insects in general creep me out.  Have you seen an outbreak in your back yard?

Thoughts on last nights city council and school board meetings?  We had an ear at the city council meeting, but not at the school board.  Expect a few reports this week from us on the council meeting.
