This is not the first time I've seen The Washington Post totally nail the cicada content. Back in March I shared an article on my blog that included a full chart on what to expect when expecting cicadas. They nailed it, even down to when my dog would be digging huge holes in the backyard because she could hear them underground.
This morning when I took out the trash, I heard it. The sound of the cicadas. Their mating call. It's far in the distance now, but give it a few weeks and that sound will be engraved in our minds and ears for years to come. I wanted to find out what the call was about, and what happens to the cicadas after the signing begins. The Washington Post was here again, with this awesome interactive cartoon that breaks it down easily.
