Two evenings ago I heard the first cicada of summer. My grandson also heard the classic sound as well and he groaned, “Summer’s going fast!” I remember the chirping/droning call of the cicada in late August, reminding me that school was just around the corner! Groan!
June 30 has to be a record in these parts for the arousal of that insect. Has to be. Could this early arrival be yet one more clue that our climate is changing? Bet so.
