I just heard six gunshots. I'd have written them off as fireworks, but when there's one, followed by five in quick succession... One might rationalize that it was actually fireworks, but the cadence for the explosions was all wrong. I wish I didn't know what that sounded like, but on the other hand, around here, maybe it's better to know.

i feel: annoyed annoyed

It was a ways away, 100 yards or more.

Okay, although that still sounds too close for comfort... but then again, I'm a big chicken when it comes to noises outside my house.

Well, my main source of comfort there is that I know the bullet will drop before it reaches me.

Nope, that's for atomic bombs, sorry.

Actually, it works better for gunfire.

I've been watching too much Jericho.

A good show, BTW.

When we hear gunfire up here, we just say "Darn Hunters" or "Silly neighbors with their target range". I think you guys should move up here so that hearing gunfire doesn't have the bad connotations. C'mon, ya know ya wanna. Everyone's doing it. :)

You have no idea, but it's a long commute with darkwolfie working in Boston.

I think that after everything else in your neighborhood that would have been the last straw for me. I'd be calling the moving truck.

I have no money with which to move.

Could be worse. Nothing's caught on fire for a while.

And also, after living with artillery for 7 months, gunfire is no big deal.
