Ok, I am just so mad right now I have to rant about it, and I figure I might as well do it here. Ok, so I live in the foothills and we have quite a bit of trouble with pot up here, mainly because the motto is "hey it's the moutains, all there is to do is get drunk, smoke pot, and have sex" lol....now I am an opposite sleeper, I sleep during the day and am up all night, now I know that this isn't "convient" for everyone but who cares. Anyway, back to the point..for the last 4 days in a row a helicopter has been coming around, flying VERY low and I have my window open because it is starting to warm up, and have you ever heard a helicopter right outside you window so low that you could practicaly hit it with a rock (hmm..note to self, see if that works..hehe). Well it is quite load, and not very easy to sleep through and I know exactly what they are doing, they are looking for pot fields!!!! They do this a lot, but they havn't done it at my house in quite a while, but they circle over and over again and it is so annoying!!!! Plus do you know how hard it is to disguise a field of pot when you are half asleep..lol..just kidding! Any way that is my rant..hehehe

That's just the governments way to exersise their paranoia. Don't those people have other things (ie-war) to worry about? You could always be proactive about it and call the government to complain. I'm a huge believer of getting your voice heard. They should NOT be flying so low to the ground that you could throw stuff at them, no matter how tempting they are making that option it would probably not be a good idea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Seriously though, there is othing preventing you from calling some offical (look in the phonebook, call city hall and ask who it was and where to file a complaint.... you know the process). They don't know if you work 3rd shift and sleep during the day, they have a right to fly over you at a certain height, but I couldn't imagine they have good reason for flying so close....

BeardedLady makes a good suggestion. And, while you wait for any resolution... what you could do is create a sort of soft music CD and just wear headphones while you sleep. I don't know if this is an option for you... but at least it would muffle much of the sound of the helicopter.

Heh, I live in dowtown DC so I hear ya about the helicopters. We also get sirens (lately, there have been parades of police cars and vans, all with sirens blasting), planes, construction, drunken aholes....it gets very noisy.<br><br><br><br>
I've found that investing in good pair of earplugs really helps.

well luckily they don't do it for too long, and only once a day, but it is still annoying because it is usually between an hour to two hours after i fall asleep..and that is like my first REM..don't wake me during REM..lol...they don't give up..hopefully this will be thier last day. I am exaggerating a little on the hight..it is very close, but I live kinda on a hill and there is a, not exactly valley, but a lot smaller, right below me, so they fly low because of that..but it is still a lot lower than they need to be flying, and a couple time I bet I probably coulda at least hit em with a sling shot (and thats saying a lot cause I can't work a sling shot well..lol) If it doesn't stop by next week I will be calling..thank you for that advice..i wouldn't have thought about doing that...I am happy I don't live in the city though, I mean I like visiting the city, but thats all. My friend in the course of two just got her truck broken into at her apartments and then they found a dead body at her apartment...so im not rushing to the city any time soon...24 hr noise and violence isn't for me.
