...a chopper right over our house. It looked a little big for a news chopper. I could tell it was red but couldn't see if it was a Coast Guard chopper, as it was directly above me. And usually the news choppers circle. This one just hovered, did not move at all until it left. But choppers are not uncommon around here when news breaks. Not too long before I heard the helicopter I heard the sirens and such. Something is always going on in this neighborhood. I turned on the TV and checked all the channels for a while but no one was talking about whatever whent down.
