and that was yesterday at 6:30 pm to 7ish . They were flying over our homes...never a good sign. Either an accident or they were looking for people running away into backyards.

Went to a nearby gas station  this morning and found out that  across the street there was a shooting at a store yesterday evening. Awful , all these times it has been nice and peaceful. Hope the police got the people shooting.

We've had those helicopters fly way too close to the house...makes me very nervous.... 

     for the accidental crashing or for knowing that a criminal is nearby hiding close by and running from the police.??

 

I worry about them crashing....sometimes they fly really low and to near the house...

   yup that is scary too.

I live by a bunch of fields - not just the one next to me - so every time a helicopter flies low by my house, I figure they're looking for marijuana lol -never thought they'd be looking for someone - it doesn't happen often so when it does I like to go look.   ...they probably are looking for marijuana, too. Over here it is either accidents or the police are looking for someone runnning away .

I imagine though, what it must be like for people living near or in a war zone.  It must be awful.    yes for the war zone.

Hi Ludam -

Yes, that story was on our local news.  I didn't understand why something in NYC would be on our news, but figured it was because of the nearness of the shooting to the Empire State Building.

When I stayed with my parents at times when they lived in New Jersey, the evening news was little else but murders and robberies - at least that I can remember.  It was shocking to me, being from the midwest.

we live about 25 miles from an army base so the big copters fly over our house all the time. it can get very annoying. plus they shoot the big guns practicing and it gets so loud that the house shakes. so, i know how ya feel.

I live about 7 miles from a Navy base. We don't hear guns but sure can hear when they start those jets. They don't fly over the house as much as they used to...usually just when a squadron comes home...that can be very noisy...        Ooooh that is even closer.  Oboy on the landings noise.
