An Air Raid Siren A Town Could Love

For decades, an air-raid siren ripped through Steamboat Springs, Colo., every day at 12 sharp. The screeching, 150-decibel siren sent some tourists running for cover, and was removed a couple of years ago when it was in danger of collapse. Though most agree it was annoying, Steamboat Springs residents missed the tradition. Now the city is bringing it back, albeit a softer, mellower version.
