Sent in this morning by Elizabeth from near 32nd and Q Streets: The sounds of New Years 2015/2016

— ∮∮∮ —

The East End has the reputation for getting kind of shooty on New Years Eve. Not the intentionally violent kind, but the “going out and shooting what you’ve got” kind.

It’s all for fun, maybe to scare away the bad spirits, but it can still be nerve-wracking when it’s too close. Every year people say that it sounds a little more quiet than the year before.

Annectdotally: I had a student come in after the break my last year of teaching, all excited because “my dad let me shoot off so many guns on New Years!”

The police say to call in and report any shots that you hear. The non-emergency number is (804) 646-5100.

Y’all be careful out there.
