I got a Taos hum over here

It's 11:00 PM and there's a hum or something coming from the general direction of Union Corners or beyond. Sounds like a big wood planer or something. Will it end?

More like a vacuum cleaner. Like a great big Hoover! 11:08 now.

It's all I hear.

A couple blocks from Dexter's, was hearing the same thing. You are not crazy.

Well, you were definitely hearing something anyway...

Er.. thanks Massimo.

It quit at some point last night but I hear the same sound again right now (10:15 AM).

Do I try to seek it out?

Who's with me?

I heard it last night too, and I thought it was coming from either the foundry along Packers, or Oscar's/Kraft. Too lazy to actually go and hunt it down, of course. We need an investigative report!

Does Hum Machine practice on Tuesdays? Hah.

Sometimes they do some sort of test with the train horns over at the yard. That can sound like a persistent hum.

I agree you ought to go looking for it but if you think you're getting close and there's a pulsing green glow coming from the area of the hum, I'd advise not advancing any further.

They were probably testing a new batch of shoulder/neck massagers at Red Letter News

I couldn't say where she's coming from,
But I just met a lady named Dinah-Moe Humm
