Good news and bad news.
The good news?
Epic eastern cicada action!
Swarms of cicadas are unexpectedly crawling out from under trees from North Carolina to New Jersey. The red-eyed insects are almost impossible to miss; they fly around lazily, plunking into backyard barbecues and crashing into cars.
The bad news?
Their early emergence may be another sign of a warming planet.
