We had some nasty weather here in Southwest Ohio last night. Sirens were going off all over the place and we had some pretty severe thunderstorms. Have you ever seen the lightning that is inside of clouds? It's actually pretty cool to watch but I didn't get any photos of it. The sun is shining now and hopefully the bad weather is gone. Anyway, I was wondering who else gets visits from these cute little guys called Cicada's. They are a form of locust and the 17 year ones were all over the place in 2004. And when I say all over, they are everywhere. On outdoor furniture etc... Well, there are some more around this year, not as bad as the 17 year ones but enough to bug everyone. The funny thing is I haven't seen any in my part of the city but I am hearing they are just a little north of us. Aren't they just the most ugly and scary looking things? They don't hurt you, they just fly around and look ugly. And I just had to post this photo of the bug sandwich, hope it doesn't make you lose your appetite. LOL Do you know there's a website just dedicated to Cicada's?
And this couple in Cincy has a found a way to stop their dog Freckles from eating the cicada's. She was eating them and then getting sick in their house. Cicada's won't hurt dogs if they eat them but dogs seem to want to eat alot of them and that upsets their stomachs. They put this mesh laundry bag on Freckles when she goes out. Poor Freckles, no more cicada treats for her. Have a good one!!
