That Taos hum reminds me of something I have experienced in the last few years. It seems that some people, for who knows what reason, feel compelled
to leave their old car or truck running overnight. This was the case at my townhouse in Texas for sure (it was about 50 feet from my unit), and it
happens at my new home here in Washington, and I've heard it at my sister's house as well. It is super annoying to me because I can easily hear it
even from a distance and it annoys me and makes it harder for me to fall asleep.
It seems to mostly happen during the winter and the only thing I can think is that these people are afraid their car won't start in the cold, but the
cost of running an old engine all night every night for weeks seems exorbitantly expensive to me.
