New Runway

So, there's a new runway at Logan. It opened a couple months ago. It was fought by the folks in East Boston for years, but of course, it was finally approved and built.

I didn't think anything of it. We always had air traffic circling around our house several times a week. But now, all of a sudden, every flight departing from Boston seems to be flying right over our house. 'Til 11pm or later. And then it starts at 6am each day.

Last night, lying in bed with the windows open, I wondered aloud, "so, how long DOES it take 'til you don't hear it anymore??

Then again, I didn't even really notice it until we started sitting out on the deck every night. :-)

Oh Rys, I sooo feel your pain. As air traffic has increased in/out of Newark, they rerouted air traffic to fly -- I swear -- directly over my freakin' house. It peaks in the late afternoon, but some nights (when the windows are open) I still hear planes into the wee hours of the morning. Why can't everyone just be content sitting at home? ;-)
