    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.

    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.

    With this heat it is hard to imagine anything in the 70s
