Sustained enveloping noise culminating with a menacing 'voice'

I should first describe the atmospheric conditions: it was a very humid night but visability was pretty good. The Moon was very bright and it inveloped the haze in a dull light.

First, let me say that my wife and myself did not see any type of craft. I am filing this report to see if anyone else in my area may have spotted something or had a similar experience.

My wife and I went to bed around 11:15. I noticed a rolling sound very similar to thunder. I asked my wife if she thought that the noise was thunder and she did. I looked out and saw that it was rather clear but the humidity had created a haze at ground level. The moon lit everything up and our yard and cars were clearly visable.

I related as much to my wife and she suggested that there might be a storm in the distance. Possible I suppose, but this rolling thunder noise was sustained. I found it unusal but possible due to the atmospheric conditions.

I was not timing the noise but I could not sleep because of the humidity. About 10 minutes elapsed with the sound still constantly in the background, at times becoming almost mechanical in nature, sort of like a muscle car. The volume also seemed to raise and lower. The last time I looked at my watch was around 23:35. Then I fell asleep.

Somehow I ended up on the couch down stairs. I woke to my son crying. He is 29 months old. He sleeps with us (we have a king-size bed) and he had apparently fallen out of bed. I ran upstairs my wife held him until he calmed down. I looked at my watch and saw that it was 2:05 AM. I could hear what I think were Tractor Trailers in the distance. I laid there, unable to sleep for about an hour. I ended up going back on the couch. It was strange that the air was really still, hot and thick in the bedroom (yes, there were 2 windows open upstairs.) I even stuck my hand up against the screen, and it just felt so hot. But downstairs, the air was thick and cold. It was also slightly breezy at times. I laid there for about an hour and could not sleep. As I did enter a state that would best be described as a Twighlight type state (somewhat aware but VERY relaxed)I was startled by a noise - I'm getting goose bumps at this point - that sounded almost electronic, and, for lack of a better adjective, evil. It almost seemed like one of those voice changing kids toys, or a distorted Nextel phone. I could not determine what was being said. It sounded linguistic and not just noise. I was completly awake at this point, laying, waiting. I heard it again and bolted up and looked out of our picture window that over looks a flat field that is about 100 yards. I heard it again as I made my way to the picture window which is about 5 feet behind the couch. I distinctly heard this 'voice' 2 times, and it was distinctly different both times.

I went upstairs and asked my wife if she had heard it. I was kind of dazed and didn't realize that I was waking her up. She sort of freaked out. At this point, I am completly awake, so I head back downstairs to investigate. I look around out of the window. I enter the kitchen and notice that our dog is completly asleep, I make some threatining comments out of the window trying to call this person or thing out. Nothing. Silence. I listen and notice that there appears to be some russtling in the woods that border the field.

Well, needless to say, I didn't fall back asleep.
