Rumor has it that the Chicago area has become infested with Cicadas.
You wouldn't know it where I live.
I back up to Poplar Creek Forest Preserve in northwest Cook County and I fully expected to be inundated with Cicadas. But there is nothing yet. I thought I heard some last weekend, but nothing ever became of it. Even with the nice warm weather we've enjoyed this week, I still hear more birds than Cicadas.
I'm not complaining. I'm just curious why they haven't reached us yet.
