So I'm sitting and putzing on the computer, procrastinating all the things I have to do. I head an odd thud, kinda like something big being tossed in a dumpster. No dumpsters in the area, but neighbors are always doing projects and such so I didn't think much about it. Then I start hearing an occasional Whoop from a police car -the short sound they make when they are trying to get through congested traffic. So I go outside to see if anything is going on. Sure enough, there are at least 10 police cars on my street and I can hear the sirens of a firetruck coming up. No smoke, and they are all (except the ones blocking the road off) congregating around the house just 4-5 houses down from me. A driver who had gotten "stuck" on my street, drove by and said something about a helicopter crashing. ??????? Nah! Where? So I look down the street, and sure enough, they are not going in and out of the neighbor's house, but heading through the fence into the abandoned orange grove! Hmmmmm So that's what that noise was. So Yeah, I'm OK and so are my neighbors, but that was REALLY close to my house - less than a football field away. I called the tip in to the local news, hoping to hear what exactly happened, and if everyone is OK.
