Welcome back to Tennessee! Cicadas everywhere!

Interesting factoid. Did you know that every 13 years the cicada brood XIX of the south emerges? They all emerge for one purpose: to mate. Well, I didn't either until now!

There are annual cicadas which I hate because bugs are just gross but there aren't that many and they don't last too long so I survive. But not this year! They are everywhere!!!!


Seriously, this picture accurately shows how it is right now. This is not an exaggeration.

Mitch's reaction when a cicada gets on him, "Meg, pull over. There is a cicada on my shorts."

My reaction, "Ahhhhh!! Get it off! Get if off!! Eeeewww!!!" (As I shake my hair and body in a well, hysterical fashion).

Twice in church yesterday people had to go outside with a cicada clenched in fist because cicadas got in. Eeeeeeewwwwww.

I am going to post more later because I have a lot to post about our Utah trip and we moved. No more rabbits/cockfights!!!!
