61. I used to live near an artillery range
Ft. Sill, Lawton, Oklahoma. The largest artillery range in the world. Shelling constantly day and night. Sometimes it would rattle the windows. Mostly just thuds. In those pre 9-11 days you could practically drive anywher on the base and it is massive. There would be signs on the roads: Warning, artillery shells flying overhead. Supposedly in the 60s or 70s one misfired and hit someone in a car in a nearby town and killed them.
