Night, On our Porch

At night the insects are like maracas intent on torture, and the sound of traffic looms close, as if the interstate has sidled up the hill like a snake. You can hear frogs too, and at least one quick owl's shriek.

The only sound I can identify is the loud chorus of "true katydids" interacting in the trees above. You can be glad they are up there and not on your shoulder. They are deafening.
