Place recorded: W Broad St (in front of my apartment)

Atmospheric conditions: Early morning chill but sunny

Additional observations:

I live on a very busy street and hear ambulances and police sirens all the time. On this particular morning, I heard 3 different ambulances in the span of 15 minutes. It is interesting to see how often I tune the noise of such a loud vehicle out when I am not paying attention. I wonder how many I ignore on a regular day basis.
