Slightly unsettling.

So an hour or so ago when it was still plenty dark I took the morning trash out to dump in the bins behind my shed. Right away I noticed the sound of a helicopter above the trees of my quiet neighborhood. Looking up I noticed it was a police helicopter with its spotlight sweeping the ground. “Huh,” I thought. “Something’s going on.” And I was sure to lock the patio door behind me when I came back into the house.

Just now I was in the garage and I heard the helicopter still up there. Wonder what or who they’re looking for. Wonder if I’ll ever know.
