Maybe for you. I heard the crickets last week of July first week of August.

Marked calendar in pencil cause of the drought around here. Thought they were just thirsty.

We had first frost on 9-16 and the next 3 days. That's 5 weeks 5 days to 6 weeks 1 day.

Close enough for Mother Nature.

its amazingly accurate for you. My time period has been close to 7 weeks now for 2 years. We will see what next year brings us. It rarely freezes hard in September here. I heard my first cricket Aug 11th and Im still killing a few, lol

Haven't heard them - rains been too loud, but the cat was chasing one around the kitchen last night. Maybe that one just got tired of treading water. :roll:

Some crispy water yesterday morning. Extra crispy water this morning. Even the crickets have a fire going.

Call it 6 weeks +/- written in pencil not pen, cause of all the rain we had.
