Well, I learned something today. I’ve been pronouncing a word wrong for as long as I can remember. The word is ‘decibel’. I’ve always said ‘debicel’. The word means the measurement of sound waves – how loud or soft a sound is. Yes, I looked it up.
Anyway, I’ve heard some really loud sounds before.
I’ve heard the loud booms of cannon fire that shakes the house and rattles the windows. This was when we lived on the Army base at Ft. Hood. The soldiers were way out in the field learning and practicing with the cannons. Still, even from far away from our house, it was so loud.
I’ve been to really loud concerts – enjoyed every minute of the amplified music.
One day my daughter and I were screaming as loud as we could, and still couldn’t hear ourselves. That’s because a large military cargo plane was flying over the house.
A strange noise you wouldn’t think would be all that loud is the sound of locusts – thousands of locusts – screeching or chirping or whatever it is they do. Hour after hour with the noise, and it was loud with so many of the insects doing their thing at the same time. It was funny, that when they took a short break, it was all at the same time, too. In that sudden silence our ears would be ringing just like if we’d been at a rock concert. They can sure amp up the decibels.
So, I hope this weekend you don’t have to live with many of those booming, rattling, screaming, screeching, chirping, ringing, and amped up decibels.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
