Message: Late May 1970 … traveling on Interstate 74 (on the way to Indianapolis) several miles west of Porkopolis, aka Cincinnati, I encountered a Cicada swarm of huge proportion. The windshield oozed with Cicada drippings, the wipers failed, traction was lost and the car skidded, then spun out on the Cicada road slime into a mammoth pile of Cicada debris that had been plowed from the pavement by a Hamilton County Workhouse Cicada Control Unit. Fortunately I had enough beer to last until another Cicada Control road crew could dig me out. It will soon be Year of the Cicada 2004 ….. drive carefully. — Taras Bulba, Southern Ohio

None in Wales – I Think

Message: In July/August 2002 we spent 4 wks on holiday on a caravan site in Tuscany, Italy.The whole time we were there, during when the sun was shining, we were subjected to the incessant noise these creatures make. I’ve only today discovered what they are. I’m very thankful we have none in Wales or the UK. Or if we have any, they are the quiet variety. — Jeff, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK
