The sound of the season

Posted by – August 23, 2009

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.
