Rotten, but not forgotten

As promised, the Magicicada adults are all but gone in most areas. I assume that most that are left are in Long Island or Cape Code.

Compared to last year (Brood XIII), Cicada Mania had 57% fewer unique visitors, which was expected. That said, I had 57% more fun this year, which makes up the difference.
