We've been having some warm weather the past few days. I took the streetcar home from knitting and noticed the noises are different. Now I'm sitting here in the dark with some of the windows open. The neighborhood just sounds different. Part of is that everyone else has their windows open, too, so different sounds are wafting in than just the traffic. But people are up later, too, enjoying the cool and doing things when normally they would be settling down for bed. I think partly of it is natural acoustics, though. When it is foggy the sound gets absorbed, and muted, but it is clear tonight so the sounds just shoot through air.
