Another one of those things no one told me about in Texas . . the cicadas that make noise non-stop during the night. It’s seasonal and has just started. About a week ago, we began hearing them at dusk but they would stop not long after complete darkness occurred. The last couple of days, they’ve been going all night! We don’t notice them so much in the house but outside, they’re so loud I almost stopped my watering last night and went in and got ear plugs but then I figured I needed to be listening for snakes or mountain lions or whatever other critter might want to sneak up on me.
I had my camera in my pocket last night and decided to record the noise. I was just finishing up my watering, doing the final check on the chickens and was headed to turn off the faucet.
