Postpone Dollywood because of Cicadas?

Saturday, May 15, 2004 11:33 AM
My wife and I are going to Pigeon Forge/Dollywood for Memorial Day weekend. We are staying in a log cabin in the mountains. Does anyone have solid information as to how loud the Cicadas are this year in that area. Should we postpone it? We were looking forward to a relaxing trip, but I'm afraid the noise could drive us mad.

Thank you for your help.

I can hear them outside my house right now, and they're pretty loud, but it really isn't that big a deal.

Oh, this is getting silly now!

The cicadas really aren't that big of a deal.

I have a feeling that this is terribly similar to the West Nile scare that the media has managed to create over the last couple of years.

Haven't heard/seen any in Nashville yet. Granted, I'm about 3 hours west of DW, but I doubt it's any different over there. I wouldn't let a bug spoil my fun.
