I live in Sahuarita and don't hear anything except for the rumbling of an occasional train in the distance. Very odd. I will start paying more attention. Very well could be the mines?

Next time I hear it I will try calling DM to see if they have training or something going on.

Possibly a vacuum/sweeper truck cleaning a parking lot ?

Nearest parking lot here is at least five miles away. LOL

I'm not advocating either way but do a search for "Taos Hum".

Today for a change the annoying rumbling sound came during the day. At first I thought something was wrong with my AC, but it continued when it was not running. My dogs kept running to look out the window because it kind of sounded like a diesel truck, maybe UPS, outside. I went outside and checked the sky carefully. After a while I saw a plane way up high.
So it seems that at least where I am, the sound is coming from planes. Either there is more flying going on, or they change the traffic pattern at certain times.
It seems to go on for hours and is very annoying.

I would think it might be a generator running. If it is after dark I would think it could be a tunnel being built;considering it is Tucson!

Are there any underground missile silos around you? When I lived in Colorado I used to hear rumbling and that is what it turned out to be. They were testing the engines.

The first time I heard the humming noise up here in Oro Valley, that's the first thing I thought of. We used to go to Taos a lot, and I never heard the hum, but we met many people who did. What they described is different than what I hear, though...
