The cicadas have taken up their day-long "singing" now. (Droning? Humming? What do cicadas do?) Being from California, I wasn't aware of cicadas at all when we first moved to Michigan. The first summer that we were here, I thought the sound was coming from the neighbor's light they had in their yard. That was the only reasonable thing I could come up with for that annoying noise! LOL
The next summer I read about them, so I realized what that sound was. It is a sound that ushers us into fall-time. Can it really be August already? We only have a few more weeks of "summer" weather left? Oh dear!
I do like fall weather, but fall weather ushers in snow and bitter cold. And snow is not something I look forward to (at least not a whole winter's worth!!!).
If you are interested in hearing a cicada, click here, or here or here, and make sure your speakers are turned up good and loud! The last sound clip specifically says it is cicadas from Michigan.
Edited to add: I can't believe it but last year to the date I posted about cicadas as well! Those cicadas must come out with precision!
