We live about 8 km away from a freight railroad line, which means we hear all sorts of strange noises at night and early in the morning where's little regular car traffic on the road and it's otherwise fairly quiet.
You see, empty train box cars echo like a big, metal drum, and the sound carries a long way. Combine that with the screeching noise trains make when they brake, and you something that sounds like whale mating calls. Eeeeerrroooop. Uuuuuuuummmppppp.
The trains were at it again this morning, but my wife thought I was responsible for the noise. "Did you just fart?" she asked. "No," I said. "It's the trains." Does this blog make me look fat? Link Me |
