"There Will Come Soft Rain" begins with a talking clock announcing "seven o'clock, time to get up."  The next time the clock speaks, which is controlled by the house computer, "Seven-nine breakfast time, seven-nine"

"Eight-one, tick-tock, off to school, off to work, run,run.."

The clock continues to announce times and appointments all day long.  It lists birthdays, appointments, meal times, time to clean, when to water the lawn and all of the chores the house is responsible for in notifying the occupants who are no longer there. 

It ends at ten-o'clock when the house dies.  The specifc times in the story are numerous and can be found in the text of the story.
