Katydids?

On Friday night I was walking back home from Steve and Heidi's house. I walked along the edge of the park. The air felt really odd and, out of sync with the calendar. It was so warm that I was wearing shorts and sandals. I've been hearing ground and tree crickets nearly every day since the summer, but as I passed the playground near 9th Street, there was also a single katydid singing. Halloween is right around the corner, I don't think we should be hearing katydids, let alone wearing shorts.
