We were also told about a cicada infestation that had hit the place only a few days earlier. It sounded horrendous; large, flying cockroach looking bugs had apparently come in drones and swamped the town. Apparently it was rainfall that drove them in from a nearby forest. A local restaurant owner who was doing some revamping spent 3 ...
