Well, you are not alone: there’s a weird humming noise that has been heard around the world.
What does this mystery hum sound like? According to Dr. Glen MacPherson:
The classic description is that it sounds like there is a truck idling outside your home. For some people, it is a deep and distant droning bass tone. Some people perceive the sound as a rumbling noise. The sound is louder indoors than outdoors, and louder late at night than during the afternoon. It can suddenly appear or dissappear (sic) for days or months.
