The sound of the season

NowFall around the corner that Summer is almost over and the weather is bringing us more of the wet stuff (I look at you hurricane Bill): the last couple of nights, I noticed that the crickets (Wikipedia) were out in full force doing their things with their legs. I had a theory that there’s a correlation between temperature and the noise they make and, apparently, I wasn’t too far off.

So, yes, logically, my brain is now thinking that “when chirping crickets == Fall is around the corner”. This is of course so obvious. I find it funny that I’ve been starting to associate particular sounds with seasons, as I did before when birds marked the return of the new growth.
