17-year itch

video

papa sent us this video of the cicadas in his yard. i thought it was pretty cool. the kids really enjoyed it too.

i was reading a little about cicadas - almost 5 billion will emerge in southern ohio alone - very near my parents' house in wv. their strategy is to come out in such huge numbers that their predators get tired of eating them!

protein-rich and carb-free, some people stir-fry them - they taste like asparagus!
