Bear in the Air


This helicopter has been circling my place for at least an hour! During this time I went out to take the dog for a walk in the neighborhood. I asked a cyclist-what's up with the helicopter, she said I don't know.
A couple of guys were standing and chatting. I asked them. One replied "they are looking for a woman in white walking a small dog" laughter ensued of course! Then they said they were looking for a young guy with red hair and a beard!?
Most folk here say they are wasting allot of gas, why not get some folk on foot out here!?
Well, although it is driving me crazy and a bit unnerved I would rather them catch whomever it is, than they come wielding a knife/gun or the like at me or mine!
Maybe they are searching for a lost child I don't know, but let the police do their work! that's what they get paid for! I am sure we'll hear on the noon news!

The only time we see a helicopter is usually care flight taking someone into a hospital. Once in a while they also follow along I-70 which is about two miles north of us. But we live in a pretty quiet, little town. Hope it wasn't anything serious.

I have helicopters circle my house quite a lot and friends have joked that it's because they see my greenhouse and want to make sure I'm not growing something I shouldn't be. If that's the case they are welcome to come on by and see for themselves that it's all above board.

I had a similar experience recently, and ended up with troopers with a dog and an assault rifle at my door at midnight, with the gun pointed into my home. I guess the dogs miscue sometimes. This happened on mischief night.

i always wonder what they can see from that birds' eye view.
i remember in college there was a serial rapist on and around campus. several times we had a chopper circle the neighborhood at night, shining its beam in the darkness.
they never got the guy. it was kind of scary. sometimes NOT knowing what they're looking for isn't a bad thing!
