helicopters are buzzing Mt Vernon IL again, big-time...
75 logged so far in December 2004, making this the 3rd noisiest month since I started keeping records in February 2000. A new all-time record is possible with several days remaining. The prior records were 80 in July 2002, and 97 in October 2003.
After a week off right after New Years, they've returned to wreak more extreme havoc and noise on the Mt Vernon community. No end in sight...
