Walking by Drury University – the venerable Springfield institution of higher est. 1873 – when the chimes or bells went off in the clock tower of Stone Chapel.
The bell or chime or whatever it is, rang more with a thud or clunk – like the thing was padded or something. I don’t know, maybe some sort of noise abatement.
I was late for a 1 p.m. event so I also instinctively looked up to check the time (duh, it only thudded once!) and noticed the time on the old clock face was a few minutes until 3. Don’t know if that was a.m. or p.m. but I am pretty sure the clock and it’s companion ringer-thingy are somehow out of sync.
