The police scanner is blowing up (pun intended) with reports of gas leaks all across the county. However, before panic ensues, we have a theory.It’s possible the noise is due to the emergence of the red-eyed cicadas (or devil bug as Managing Editor Chris Qualls has aptly nicknamed them) that only pop their heads in our corner of the world once every 13 years. Their call sounds uncannily like that of gas escaping.

(But if the county actually blows up, we’re going to feel really bad.)
