February 1st, 2013

I went out for a recording of the 4-6 Beaufort fluctuating wind in the bare trees on a calm spot, a small city-park down-town. But that was not the only thing I did get.
First a police-car crying his way out. Later an other one. The rest of the traffic seems to be gone with the wind I guess ;-). Than a fighter-jet passing the town together with the wind breeze in the bare branches. The first Greet tit careful trying to sings his first song of this year. Spring must be in the air, but he is the only one to feel it. I don't. The church-bells play (carillon) there song. Branches of the trees squeak against each other. And the wind keeps blowing. A crow is singing and playing in the wind. A few guys shout and have fun.
When the rain starts I decide to go home. cold as I am after an hour sitting still in this small city-park.

Now I listen back, it became more creepy than i wanted.
