So, if I tell you that YOU are going to get hit by a tornado, and then you don't, should you be thankful to me?You didn't get hit with a tornado? I'm so sorry for your lack of loss.
I spent every summer in Oklahoma growing up. Virginians merely adopted the cicada. I was born to it, molded by it. I did not hear a quiet summer until I was already a man, and by then to me, it was nothing but deafening.This is supposed to be a cicada wave year in the Virginias, too.
But next year it's going to be the entire eastern half of the USA.
