Holy fuck. I'm old. 8th grade? Really?
The link in the OP says it's 2013 and the MD/DC/VA area.
If it's not this year, when is our next mega-invasion and what Brood #?
Don't rain on my parade, Toogs.

That link is an idiot. Our brood X was in 2004. Brood II is just south of DC so you will see a few.
They are everywhere in Richmond. These things are the leftyterps of the animal kingdom, I mean legit retarded. My dog has already eaten 7 that I've seen.
2021 will be epic. Can't wait!
The link in correct, people are just reading it wrong.
Brood 2 is shown as having confirmed sightings in So. VA, PA, NJ, NY and CT. It's possible to see them in MD and DC.
are they in the west end?
Yes I saw a lot more last week than this week though
I'm going to a conference down there on Thursday & Friday. I'm having a legit-panic attack now.
I've already said I'm taking a 3 week vacation in 2021.
My kid was just invited to play in a basketball tourney in Richmond this weekend. Hmm, I might stay home while Mr. Julester takes him. Although I don't mind them too much while they're still alive. It's the rotting carcasses that really gross me out.
possible yes, but not in the plague proportions of our Brood X. I have seen a small number of exit holes, they are here, but it very limited numbers.
Correct. I typically see/hear a few cicadas every year but you can count them on one hand. This year might have a few more.
I think the robins and cardinals have taken care of a lot of them. I've seen about 2 dozen old carcasses on my tree house but I haven't seen many alive in the last 2 days. I think all the dumb ones have been eaten.
goddamn it toogs.
WTF am I supposed to do with my fully trained and ready to mobilize Cicada killers.
Not sure I can keep the group together until 2021.
well there are also cicadas that are here every year that you hear but never see
I've never up voted a thread more than this one. Some of the most hilarious stuff I've ever seen posted here. Nice work guys.
According to the maps, you are correct, but I vividly remember the invasion of 1979, which mathematically correlates to this broad. But I'm old so my memory may be way off here.
So it's a total bust, duh
Not in Hanover, VA. Driving from Richmond to Ashland I must have killed about 5 dozen on my windshield. You could see them flying all over the place. When I got out of my car the cicadas in the trees nearby sounded like someone using a weed-eater and the cicadas in the distance were just a constant ringing. You would have had to raise your voice just to have a conversation outside. It had to be approaching 100 decibels. I would imagine the area between Charlottesville and Fredricksburg is swarmed.
yes I am talking about DC and the metro area.
Bust would assume we were supposed to have a bunch. We weren't.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
all over the place in southern maryland. i've had probably 100 cicadas on my shirts/arms/pants over the past 2 weeks coaching sports. one landed on my hand. idiots bounce right off your windshield
some said we were, I was making fun of them some more.
I dunno they were pretty deafening in Woodbridge on Sunday morning...
It is the business walk of the biggest, baddest bear in the national park happening upon an abandoned picnic.
