For weeks now, this has been going on and it's beginning to drive me nuts.
The first few days, I noticed that I would randomly hear a cricket chirping, and I thought, "wow, that's a loud cricket outside our window." But then I would hear it elsewhere in the house and think, "wait a minute... there can't still be this many crickets out; it's too cold outside." Which led to the realization that there must be a cricket stuck in the house somewhere.
Then one day I realized I HEAR IT EVERY TIME THE FURNACE KICKS ON. Just two little chirps. Which means what- that it's lying dead somewhere in the heat ducts and so when the air starts up it blows on it and makes it chirp? Do you know how annoying a cricket chirp can be?
I like the sounds of crickets... from a distance.
This past summer one got stuck in our tent and it chirped all night long. We couldn't find him but he wouldn't shut up. I thought we were going to lose our minds. Ever tried sleeping in that close a proximity of that chirping? Not a good night.
And that sound does not belong in my house either.
There it is again.
