HEY YOU GUUUUYYYYSSS! IT’S CICADA TIME AGAIN!

Some people love them, others are revolted. Cicadas, those big, loud, harmless bugs are emerging across the Mid-Atlantic. Cicadas have been reported in recent days in Fairfax, Va., Potomac, Md., and Annapolis, Md.

A cicada brood emerges once every 17 years, but since there are different broods, you’ll see them more than once every 17 years. This year’s cicadas were last seen in 2000. They come out of the grou…
