Halloween, 2008: Helicopters and Sirens Go On and OnFriday, October 31st, 2008
I was Downtown about 8pm this evening. Some folks were gathering but it was generally quiet. It appeared Chapel Hill’s attempt to “scare” off visitors might have worked.
Starting 9:30pm though I began to wonder.
We live close to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and the Police Station. Starting 10pm there was the constant thrum of helicopters overhead and the nearly continuous whine of sirens moving. Then, as 11:30pm approached, the helicopters moved off and the sirens quieted.
Tomorrow we’ll get to see if we achieved a Homegrown Halloween.
