Mysterious Windsor Hum Stops After 10 Years

tl:dr
A mysterious subsonic hum has plagued the Windsor area for 10 years. After US Steel blast furnaces on Zug Island Mi were shutdown, the hum has stopped. The blast furnaces were causing intense vibrations in the plant's magnetic foundation

.... Novak explained that the hum was being generated by the facility’s blast furnaces running at a higher-than-normal capacity, causing the metallic foundation of the plant to reverberate intensely......Similar phenomena have been documented across the world: in the U.S., there are cases in Taos, N.M., and Kokomo, Ind., while internationally, the next most famous hum was documented in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2006.....

It’s not about what you hear, it’s about what you feel…. It is literally vibrating your organs

Interesting enough, according to Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zug_Island

The original purchaser, Samuel Zug, was one of the founders of the Republican party. He was a stanch abolitionist and participated in the Underground Railway network. He purchased land in nearby Canada so it could be settled by his freedom seekers
https://www.elmwoodhistoriccemetery.org ... amuel-zug/

The "island" land was purchased in 1859 and intended for Zug's luxury estate. The was too swampy, so Zug sold it industrial companies who used it as a chemical dump

An artificial channel (at the bottom of your Google view) was cut to allow freighters access to the Rouge River and the Henry Ford's original factory upstream. This turned the land into Zug Island

If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
