Right now there’s drilling going on outside the house. I think they’re putting in some new pipes, water or gas or something like that. The concrete is being smashed to pieces using one of those diggers with the big spike. It’s pretty loud.
But not loud enough that I can’t still hear the cicadas. For the last few weeks these noisy insects have been making an absolute racket. It’s so ridiculously loud, at first I couldn’t believe an insect could be so noisy.
And then I saw one.
Good god. I don’t like nature any more.
