What is that annoying tone? Around Town, posted by Jeral Poskey, a resident of the Old Mountain View neighborhood, on Jul 6, 2010 at 10:13 am
For the last 2 days I've been hearing a tone intermittently. It's an electronic tone off in the distance that goes off for a few seconds, roughly every 15 minutes, but sometimes more frequently. I live near the downtown Caltrain station, and I'd describe it as merely annoying, although it did disrupt my daughter's sleep. I'm sure that wherever the tone originates, the people near there must find it much worse.
