I’ve probably reported before that I wake up several times a night. Well, the past couple of months, I’ll sometimes become aware of a mild vibration during those waking moments.
What is that? Where is it coming from? I had decided it was the refrigerator compressor. Or maybe it was a thing my nervous system was doing—some old person thing to add to the New Normal list. Great. Or space aliens are trying to beam me up. Yeah, that’s it.
But I finally made the connection last night. The vibration is from trains going by about a half mile away. At least I think it is. I need to test the hypothesis by observing whether the vibrations still happen when I’m far from any rails. If I never report back it’s because the aliens beamed me up.
