So guess who got a rude awakening at 2200 local…
Air raid sirens with “Important Message” Cadence over the “Hesa Fredrik” (Hoarse Fred) siren system.

First reports are that a quiet test after an equipment upgrade turned out to be in anger.

I was up 3 times during the night, yet somehow managed to totally miss a big fire a block away.

POS driver arrested and facing numerous charges; reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to immediately notify of an accident, and failure to render aid. Additional charges may be added, including possible federal charges.

A video captured on a GoPro camera shows the moment when a car clips into a cyclist in a hit and run accident that took place along the Natchez Trace Parkway in Tennessee, sending him tumbling to the pavement….

…The Natchez Trace Parkway is a designated bicycle route, according to the National Park Service (NPS)….”

A pneumatic siren 50 m away on top of a school is hard to miss, especially in summer when you have the windows open. I was up by the time the 3rd 7 second tone sounded.
(Cadence is 7 s tone 14 s silence, repeated)

That might have gotten me up a fourth time.

He should be able to beat the “leaving the scene of an accident” charges.

“Your Honor, I was leaving the scene of an attempted murder.”

Well, the Post Moderners are certainly fun. Nice bit of early jazz in that.

I watched that and shrieked when it happened. My cat: “What’s your problem? Your noise is interrupting my grooming session.”

Aunt Bee always said to take your time, there’s no rush. And Andy always finds time to go fishing with Opie.
