Back in the mid-80's while attending SUNY ESF, I had the privilege of spending a summer at the Cranberry Lake Biological Station. Many evenings I would sit on the dock and if the weather was right, I could hear the artillery fire at Ft. Drum. Definitely sounded like distant thunder or fireworks...but not quite.
