My kids came bursting into the office telling me about the “biggest, giant bee!” that they had found in the swimming pool. I went out to see what kind of evil 2020 had flown into the pool and sure enough, there it was on the skimmer. There, plain as day it was… an Orchard Cicada. Cue the faceplam.
On the other side of things, I did see two things that I thought were leaves at the bottom of the pool but turned out to be slugs. (Nasty!!) They went over the fence to visit my neighbors obnoxious dogs.
