If you have never experienced the volume of noise they bring you better get used to wearing earplugs.

    My family was visiting my uncle in Newark, Delaware today. When we got out of the car you could hear them pretty loud and clear. Thought it was a siren or something at first. Luckily they still haven't made their way to the suburbs of philly yet.

    I am visiting my parents right now in Maryland. The cicadas are insane. I took a video of the noise they are making in their backyard. It sounds like aliens - this amazingly loud staticky shrill noise. I wanted to share the video - but not sure how to upload it here from my phone.

    I was just sitting outside on my parent’s deck and one landed on me. When they are all making noise together it sounds like a staticky racket. But when one of them is making noise near your ear it sounds like a person screaming. It was a very disconcerting sound.

    Years ago I used to teach school in Betesda right across from NIH, Old Georgetown Rd side. Man the years have flown by, that's where I first heard those cicadas in 87'. The noise does sound from another world.
