    This is the sound of hundreds of cicadas rubbing their wings against the earth where they live before they emerge to mate. We are able to hear them because they cause the roots of trees to vibrate with such intensity that their bark emits this buzzing cacophony that we so fondly associate with summer. You will not hear them in the winter because the frozen ground is to hard for them to vibrate.
