Surrounded by planes.

<a href="[] src="/emote/ramt.gif" align=left hspace=8 vspace=4 border=0></a>I live below the approach path for the Santa Monica Airport in LA and I also live close enough to LAX to hear and see the planes. I thought that the silence without the planes was very eerie, and I was very surprised to hear planes and helicopters coming into the smaller Santa Monica Airport as early as Tuesday night. I don't know if their purposes involved New York and Washington or the great fires that are raging in the Northwest, but I knew that their purpose must be serious. I was very happy, though, when I was out and about yesterday (Friday) and I saw several planes coming into and leaving LAX - so many more than I ever thought there could be so soon. As I was watching these planes, so happy that they were there, I also couldn't help but imagine one of them turning off course, and it was frightening to have that visual. I have also noticed that the planes tend to be staying lower. For someone who is affraid of planes crashing into my house anyway (this has happened twice since I've lived here - once less than one block away), this is an added stress I could really do without, especially since I have become so sensitive to noise this past week.
