@Aquaria:  Oh my. FH told me about this a while ago and he said there would be like millions of them this year (sorry, i know it’s scary but true!) 

I am terrified as well! I have never seen these things before because where I come from we don’t have them!!! I hate bugs. All of them. 

Ugh. Not leaving the house. Ever. 

Why did I have to buy a house with a pool this year??

@Aquaria:   i live in central maryland and i heard that this round of cicadas are only coming to southern maryland.  i don’t know about princeton. 

i remember when they came in the 85 or sometime around then, i was in 1st grade maybe and they were awful.

the ones that came 17 years after that weren’t as bad.

I feel you. I am frantically trying to finish planting the garden before those little f’ers arrive. As I was tilling one section this weekend I fould all of these cicadas getting ready to break forth. Gave me the heebie jeebies. I hate how they fly straight into you. When they touch me I let out a little scream. No lie. We live next to state forest/river preserve land, and I am absolutely dreading the experience. Dreading it.

I’m terrified for it.  But I plan on being extremely grossed out.  OP are you in Jersey?  Crap they probably love the park across from my house too.

@Aquaria:  EEEEE I hate them!!!! I experinced the ’96 infestation and thought I Was going to DIE. I’ve since moved to Michigan and I can’t say I’ll miss those fuckers.

Oh no, I read an article about weddings and cicadas a few weeks ago. I live in DC and they swarm us as well.  Is there a possibility at your venue to move anything inside? Tent…nets…? Maybe jsut the food inside? 

What if you arranged with your photographer to have your portraits taken prior to the wedding…that way you won’t seem terrified in your formal pics. Regardless…make the best out of it! Try to make a joke out of it at the reception, you could even add some cicada themed stuff to the decor. Just enjoy yourself, you will (hopefully) look back and laugh one day.

I have never even heard of this…and it sounds like it is out of a horror movie. I would not leave the house either. Luckily I work from home, so I wouldn’t have to. I wonder what fur baby would think of them. He would probably try to eat them *shudder*

Wow…creepy bugs!  That blows!  And here I thought I had it bad because one time I accidentally incited a stampede of about 300 elk while I was getting the newspaper….damn

Ugh, I HATE cicadas!!! I remember when we had a TON of them around 2002. I was in the car with my dad and while sitting at a red light one flew in the window! I screamed so loud everyone in their cars around us were looking over, probably thinking I was some kind of freak.

OMG, I’m glad we don’t have it here in MA!  I’m already terrified of all things creepy crawlies that I occasionally bump into.  I can’t image having a massive swarm of them.
