This was forwarded by a friend. Her grandmother had a cousin
living in Niagara Falls that year. She told the family that she and her neighbors
woke up in the night feeling something was wrong.
It took a while but they finally realized that it was the lack of noise. They had
all become so used to the roar of the falls that the silence was unusual enough
to alert their senses. Of course at that time nearly all the houses were near the
falls. Amazing pictures! 100 years old! Can you imagine walking on
Niagara falls ?
