I feel the same way about the trains. I hear them all night, because I stick my nose out the window to sleep. I LOVE hearing them. I'm also on a flight path. I never really hear them (I guess because I've lived here so long) - no that's not right, I do hear them when it's stormy and they're flying real low. It's super cool to be in my backyard and look up to see this huge plane flying right overhead. Plus, I get to see lots of weird little planes...prop jets and the like.
I also live near a church that chimes the hour and half hour...up until at least midnight. Maybe all night. And, live near the zoo. I hear the monkeys often, and sometimes the lions.
Also live near the college, and hear football games...the band playing like crazy.
I want to "retire" to the mountains of NC, but I really wonder how I'll do when I can't hear these sounds.
