Ok, I live in close proximity to Knobknoster, which is 5 miles from Whiteman AFB, home of the B2 and A-10. I think something is about to happen, I have never heard them so many times in one night. For the past week, from about 10 pm to 3 am, B2's have been really active. I know the distinct sound of them as they fly over my house often once or twice a week. Believe it or not they can be somewhat loud. But in the past week, instead of the usual 1 or 2 fly overs, I have counted as many as a dozen, while awake. I don't know if I am hearing things or what but it is enough to wake me. A-10's have also been flying alot more lately, and if anyone has ever heard one, you know when they are low they sound like they are screaming.
Anyone have thoughts on what this might be for?

The 509th just had a no notice NSI, so they're probably having some kind of exercise going on. Maybe an ORI. The 131st Bomb Wing just had a new Wing Commander get certified on the aircraft as well.

Maybe it's because of North Korea or the NATO summit... I know they deployed several B-2 to Guam and probably a few others to Japan.

My guess would be that or exercise.

The Guam deployment was a regular scheduled deployment. They were replacing the B-52 unit that was scheduled to rotate home.

There was an NSI from March 15 through the 23rd.
My guess would be the increased activity was associated with that.
