Helicopters (a sign of summertime)
The weather may not be really summery these days, but there is a sign that summer is most definitely here: we hear the hums of helicopters flying over here very often these days. Yesterday we had a whole lot of them. I know correlation is not causation, but all the same, I am more aware of helicopters when summer is here. I am not alone: my wife told me yesterday that she had heard them far more recently. I suspect they fly up more often around this time of year. I blogged about helicopters and why I identify them with summertime in 2014. If it is a confirmation bias, I stand by it. But I wonder if my readers hear them and see them more in summertime.
