Listening (not quite) Blindfolded #2

Posted on

living near the Conestoga Parkway brings a variety of noise into my space which, admittedly, i have learned to ignore.

While taking a break from shoveling, i allowed myself to focus in on the sounds of moving traffic on the expressway.  I could easily distinguish between cars verses transport trucks, etc. and continued to listen until the sounds became even more distinctive and i could make out the difference in the sound of acceleration between what i imagined came from a four cylinder car from that of an eight cylinder car, the unique sounds of poorly maintained vehicles struggling to maintain speed, and the sound of a car driving at 100kph with a faulty exhaust system
