No. I didn't see it. I'm sorry.
I am about a half-mile from IL Rte 59 only up in Lake County in Ingleside. At 2:30, the most annoying weedwhacker sound was cutting it's way through
the Metallica: Death Magnetic that I had cranked up. It was like the weedwhacker was in the room, decibel-wise, because I had James & Co. friggin LOUD
and the noise was still annoying. I was so intrigued that I paused the playback and tried to identify the noise, which, while rocking, I attributed to
the next-door neighbor trimming his side garden, right outside my window here.
So, I turn down the music and realize it wasn't a weedwhacker noise at all, it more resembled the whine of an RC car or plane. Similar, but,
different. So, I make a point of looking for the source of the noise by standing up and looking out the window. Nuthin. No weedwhacker, no RC car
zipping around in the street or anything.
So, I go outside on my porch. I try to identify the sound's direction when I realize it's coming from, like, right above me, or, behind me or
around me like stereo surround.
Just as I realize this, the sound fades from significant to nothing. No sound at all. Like the volume was steadily, but, quickly turned off.
I thought to myself, "Huh....that was just odd...", went back inside and continued my day. Like nothing even happened.
Kinda weird now. Well, weirder...hmmmmm
