First in town reception

Today K8KSM heard my Raspberry Pi WSPR beacon. This is the first time someone in my same town has heard me. The previous shortest distance was almost to Cleveland (~ 100 miles away) ... So, I had been suspecting my random wire had properties that made it bounce up higher before going anywhere so most of the reception was from the signal traveling in the upper atmosphere. The usual close reception is Indiana or Michigan on 30 meters. So, perhaps not as cool as the previously mentioned New Zealand a while back at such low power, but also just as curious that no one in town or even closer than a state usually ever hears me.
