Attack of the cicadas!
Kentucky, like many other states, is having an "outbreak" of 17 year periodical cicadas. They only live for a few weeks and other than some relative harm to young fruit trees, they don't really bother anything. Except for the deafening noise. At night they are so loud outside that it can be hard to have a conversation in some locations. They are also really ugly creatures. They like to swoop down my chimney and die on my living room floor/hearth. Gross!
