dugitman: I've known about this for under 5 minutes, and I'm going to guess this is somehow related.
Can I have some of that study money for pointing you in the right direction?

No, because you're wrong. The turbines are out in the county, while last I heard most of the hum complaints were in west Windsor, meaning the collected sound of the wind turbines would have to be amplified and focused toward the west side without anyone else across the rest of the city noticing any effect. AFAIK, turbines have been eliminated as the cause. Best guess so far is something situated in the industrial area across the Detroit River known as Zug Island, but so far no one knows what, exactly, is the source, and the governments on the other side of the river haven't been entirely cooperative in the matter.

//the turbines are pretty nice, actually

The study will reveal that thought they couldn't quite explain it, they said it's always been there.

Bit'O'Gristle: I live in a very small town, that a RR runs through, and when the train is way off, but heading to the town, the rails set up with odd harmonics, that you can feel and hear. I wasn't sure what they were until a townie told me. It was very unsettling at first.

I ban you from using commas for the rest of the day.

Foundling: I thought that this had already been explained as the Auroras, and it is relatively common in northern latitudes. I heard it in Ohio (100 miles south) when I was little.

Last year I had a boyfriend that wouldn't accept that answer, nor would he shut up about it, so I left.

Windsor isn't nearly north enough to have regular Northern Lights. He was right.

I'm less than a mile off I-75 in NW Atlanta, and you can subtly hear the freeway from my yard any time, day or night, but it's not too annoying. About 3/4 block away from me, it's unbearable, like the noise is being bounced right into this one spot, you can't speak to another person, or on your phone, in a normal tone. The noise window is about 30 feet long and is known to all on the street.

You'd think someone would have a ballpark guesstimate as to what that shiat actually is without wasting a bunch of money on a study,. but that's just me.

We've made them angry, and now we must pay with the blood of our children.

Way to go, Windsor.
