Warning Siren?

I have always believed this downtown tower to be the source of the every-other-Friday-at-11-a.m. siren test I can faintly hear from my home. This, if it is the siren, is the only such siren in this whole county. So, if it sounds to warn of a tornado...a very limited number of folks are going to hear it. Spring in the Midwest....I don't know that I will ever get used to the tornado watches and warnings and be able to take them in my stride as most of those here seem to do.

We have a similar siren here where I live but our siren is not as pretty as your siren. We hear our siren the first Monday of every month. It got stuck once and caused a kind of riot with city workers looking for a kill switch.

Hi, Zann, from Nelson, New Zealand.

A friend just posted me an article in a New Zealand newspaper about the tree cosies in Columbus, Indiana. I checked the Google Map and though you may or may not be too far from there.

Have you seen them?

Happy shooting.
