12/12/19 - WOW this was cool! I got there about 10-15 minutes ahead of time – easy to find a spot at the totem poles on a wintry Thursday – and waited. It sure is loud!

When I was a kid in the 50’s, living in Kitsilano about 10 miles from the gun, it was our signal to go home. We didn’t have a watch and the sun would still be up. We all thought it was a curfew signal
