I heard it late last night.
It was kinda like a coughing sound. Almost like someone was gagging. Choking perhaps.
Reminded me a bit of when a cat hucks up a furball. "Klllllew....haluck, haluck...achkkkkkkechhheh."
Reports of the noise were first noticed in Florida but it was QUICKLY heard in the Northeast. And it was LOUD. Very very loud. Haunting. Scary loud.
Growing up I never heard that noise. But now it's the 21st century and I hear it a lot. Usually in the fall....though this year I heard it in April and May. But it went away for the summer.
And now it's back. And life is good.
It's almost musical.
For the last 7 years or so I wait for the noise. I wait. And I wait. And I wait. And it always comes. And it's always a bit louder (though I doubt it will ever be as loud it as was in 2004)
Sounds like an old man on his death bed. The old man used to be a bully, but now he's just an old tired wannabee. A coughing , hacking, choking wannabee that'll never be.
Magic number is 3. The Yankees suck.
