Weird noise

I have been hearing a low, humming rumble come from the downtown area for the past half hour at least — it’s 1:18 a.m. I am in Lakeside near the lake around 54th Avenue East. Is anyone else hearing this? Could it be boat sounds carrying over the water? No boat visible.

"Hey, it's a nice night....It's one of the last ones. I mean, that low rumble you hear? It's winter. It's only about a mile away." I just read this in "The Snow Queen" by Michael Cunningham. He and I think you heard winter. So that's depressing.

That's cool -- (HA) -- maybe I need to read this book!

I can hear that too. Not sure, but I think I've heard it before... Just some of the random noises that now and then emit from industrial Duluth and the shipping areas.

I live a bit north of town, and every once in a while I can hear a train lumbering about somewhere to the southwest. I can typically hear it for about 20 minutes or so before it fades out of town.

I have been hearing that same noise at the same time, but I live further inland, almost a mile up 54th from Superior St. At this distance, I assumed it was a train. They often move freight cars up and down those tracks late at night and I was thinking that was what I was hearing. If you are closer to the tracks and don't think it is a train, then it must be something else. I have heard the noise a lot lately, so whatever it is seems to be on some sort of schedule.

Probably the Navy testing the weaponizing of freshwater fish. Or I just made that up.
