I wouldn't mind learning to cook cicadas. (I think they're even kosher!) When I was last in VA (1970s) we had a massive crop of grasshoppers one year, and a friend of mine fried a batch for breakfast, but they were terribly tough.

Your part of Massachusetts, Joe F., sounds a great deal like my part. I'm just glad to put as much distance as possible between this ending winter, and the 2014-2015 winter, I need say no more, SHUDDER.

RE: relocating. Do stop and consider the cicadas. Another batch --"Brood V" -- is due to emerge with the next warm rainstorms, which raise the ground temperature where they are getting ready to come out of hibernating.   

"Brood V" is supposed to be concentrated mainly around southeastern Ohio and southwestern Pennsylvania, with that sliver of West Virginia in the mix. In 2020, however, there is another big brood, forget which Roman numeral designation, due to come out; and that will occupy more of Virginia.

Currently there are numerous online articles updating the whole periodic watch for broods of cicadas, both the 13-year and the 17-year types; many of them have brightly colored maps of the lower 48 states, showing the geographical distribution of differently-timed emergences.

Surely not winter here in Massachusetts -- there are leaves & blossoms on some of the trees -- and last week we had a couple of days in the 70s (F), so I got my annual haircut; but mostly it hovers in the 50s. This happens every spring: I keep being indignant that it is not 10 degrees warmer, right up into the 80s. Maybe I should move back to Virginia.

Well we had the first swallows here last week and nearly four inches of snow this morning.
It was starting to settle at midnight whilst we were coming back from performing at the Topic at Bradford and was a complete blanket with some local roads closed when we woke up this morning.
It is melting now so we should be able to set off for Upton Festival soon!

The weekend weather for the New England Folk Festival in Mansfield, MA, was great! Today has been glorious, too, in RI. I hadn't heard the Boston Marathon results nor what went on at Fenway Park, so I'll be tuning into the 11 PM news. I'm not much of a sports fan, but it's still good to know.

Yowsa; we set out about 11am for the care facility where the FIL now resides. A few scattered flakes were falling. About 2/3 of the way there, we drove into it. A couple of minutes after that, we drove slowly unto the ramp from Michigan 24 to I75, zigzagged all over the ramp, and crept on hardly believing we hadn't gone off the ramp. I went right back off the ramp to head back north, and enjoyed 30 miles of driving as nasty as I've ever seen in my life. NO traction, crud freezing on the wipers, stretching to see through what spots stayed halfway clear. A pickup pulls across short in front of us, I'm scared to brake and scared not to, he makes it before we hit, and my heart gradually slides back down from the throat. We made it home unscathed. It's been an hour or so. and I've settled back to feeling fairly normal. April ????

Not sure if I'm looking at small hail or sleet. It's surprisingly warm for frozen stuff to be falling out of the sky. Probably change in a matter of minutes, with that spring wind blowing the clouds about. We had direct sunshine just minutes ago.

Here in the supposedly sweet sunny south, high winds coming for Saturday (been windy all week) and low of 25F Saturday night. The hydrangeas are fully leafed and setting flower bud, the solomon's seal is up and the earliest day lilies are sending up flower scapes, and the azaleas are in full bloom. Fruit trees either blooming or already starting to set tiny fruit. Strawberries in the fields.

I'm not sure covering will be enough to protect stuff at that low a temperature, plus, if the wind doesn't die late day, will be very hard to keep covers on and hydrangea branches from breaking under cover whipped by wind.

An occasional light frost is not unusual the first part of April, but 25?

Blinding blue sky sunshine reflected off of the inches of new white snow today. It's bitterly cold, especially at night. Now we are being promised a visit from a storm system which will warm up everything, and bring thundershowers and temperatures well above freezing.

This time I think the road crews, God bless 'em, were caught napping. In previous storms, those truck drivers have done yeoman's work, plowing, sanding, salting, treating the road surfaces. But this week their timing was off. They were just that little bit behind the arrival of the snow and ice. And so the driving conditions suffered, especially those Monday rush-hour timespans. The trucks were out there, to be sure, but they got there too late, and they were scrambling to catch up with the snow and ice, instead of being prepared for it. The crashes and spin-outs were not major, most of them, but there were such quantities of them!

It did nothing to help drivers' morale when one car had a rotten TREE, for heaven's sake, crash on the roof and kill both occupants.

More about Sunday: yes, it snowed. Then the sun did come out. Then snow, sunshine, snow, sunshine, etc. Today, Monday, snow fell then stopped in time for me to go to yoga. It was an easy drive. Snow hadn't accumulated on pavement. By the end of the class, snow had started falling again--thick flakes. I skipped the fitness circuit to come right home, also skipping the stop at the market I'd planned. I live about 2 miles from the Y. The short drive was horrible. Untreated roads; cars sliding everywhere. Thank goodness for anti-lock brakes and front-wheel drive. I've never seen the skid signal appear on the control panel so frequently. At 7 PM I took shower, got into my PJs, then heard the plow in the condo parking lot. I threw on my coat and hat, brushed the snow off my car, and moved it so the plow could do a good job clearing my corner of the lot. I am so done with winter, but Mother Nature may not be.
