    First Cicada

    Heard the first cicada of the year tonight. Great grandma always said six weeks to first frost. That would put it at August 16. That seems a little early.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Generally six weeks is pretty close, but mid aug would seem a little ridiculous with the current weather. Maybe the heat has them thrown off.

    The warm spring probably also confused them

    Yes everything is early this year. I would be shocked if we have our first freeze 6 weeks from now.
