cicada_head.jpgIf you're on the East Coast, you've probably heard for several weeks now about the impending invasion of billions of buzzing cicadas. And if you're like me, this may terrify you just a little.

In many places, including here in DC, the cicadas haven't arrived yet -- due in large part to the blast of colder-than-normal weather we've been having, I hear -- but just in case you need a reminder of the onslaught that awaits, check out this crazy time-lapse video of the cicada life cycle.

Watch, after the jump.

Let's hope the bugs hold off until after Memorial Day. Enjoy the weekend!
