WLW-AM 700 (Cincinnati, Ohio) has been reading off cicada recipes over the weekend (I traveled through southern Ohio this weekend.)

Here's the link to their cicada cookbook:

will cicadas be present all along the eastern half of the states? including new york? i find them digusting, and the story of how they emerge from the ground creepy.

i've been lucky to never see them, but they sound like cockroaches.

I remember seeing (and HEARING!!) those noisy things when I was in Maryland. Those Cicada skins would be all over the place after they hatch.

I've seen Cicadas here in California but they are barely an inch long and are not as common as they are out east. You can often find them out in the desert and they make long and high pitch buzzing noises.

They're not out in Indiana yet (supposedly one of the hottest cicada areas in the US). For you fisherman, use a Jitterbug or Hocus Locus near a shore lined with forest. The bass will hammer them about 2-3 days after they start for about a week. I'm looking forward to the shells my son will collect off the trees. Nothing like a bushel of hollow cicada carcasses (or is that carci?).
