Annoying horn sound at 3:30am? Around Town, posted by Adobe, a resident of the Adobe-Meadows neighborhood, on Jan 27, 2012 at 6:42 am
This morning at about 3:30am, I heard this horn sounding in the distance. I thought it might be from CalTrain, but then it just kept on sounding every 20-30 seconds or so. It sounded like it was pretty far away, but it was still loud enough to keep me awake, which I definitely did not appreciate at that time. I feel sorry for those living closer to it.
Did anyone else hear this? Does anyone know where it was coming from? We can't be woken up in the wee hours of the morning by stuff like this. Please, somebody, make it stop!

> quit complaining!!!
Sounds like you are the one complaining. Why does Palo Alto need a fog horn? I have been here for 40 years and I cannot remember ever seeing a boat around this area in clear weather, why do we need a fog horn so you can whine about people complaining about being woken up for no reason?

I kinda like the horns reminds me of living on the coast! Who would think foghorns were needed in palo alto but it makes sense with all the bay channels. I just never noticed it in past years! And I've been here since the '70's! LOLREMINDS ME THAT WE LIVE AMONG NATUre still. There is some serenity in it!
