A Thankfully Rare Event
I don't know about your neighborhood, but mine is buzzing - thanks to the swarms of cicadas that are putting in a brief appearance.
The big bugs burrow out of the ground and fly around, making a cumulatively loud buzzing noise worthy of any science fiction movie. They leave behind their husks and then they go away for another 17 years.
The Herald-Dispatch has a photo gallery with several shots of the visitors, including this one by Melissa Bossie in Charleston, who calls them "Beautiful bugs!"
Like I always say, it takes all kinds. You can see more photos right here.
(Yes, I know this has nothing to do with theatre - but I figure since they visit so rarely, the least I could do is give the cicadas a mention.)
