Reader Chris says he has been awakened a bit earlier than usual lately:
Our north slope micro hood on Mullen has experienced a not unpleasant new early morning ritual: Taps, or at least a bugle announcing the arrival of morning, starting at around 5:30am, and repeating about every 15 minutes for a half-hour. Although vaguely military, this short, plaintive version has the intended “announcement” feel and a soft free-form tone that’s so very appropriate for our little enclave.
That’s all I know.
Yesterday Reader Alicia heard it with a Jewish accent:
Around 5:30am this morning I heard someone blowing a shofar… Do you know anything about this? Didn’t see anything on Bernalwood, but thought you might be a good resource for an answer!
So what exactly does it sound like? Listen in, because Reader Chris captured a brief recording (click the arrow to play):
Have you heard it too?
