Sounds to me like they're a bit too large and noisy to be insects.

Could they be looking for that guy who dissapeared from Skagit Co? Probably not. Tune in KOMO 1000 am if you can. Let us know.

The Chinese Prime Minister is meeting with Bill Gates, evidently to get advice on how to become a world superpower (or maybe to get some help removing a Windows XP virus).

Bill doesn't know the answer to the latter question.

Dick Cheney is in town and stayed the night at the Redmond Mariott. His motorcade is probably out and about.

He's headed to Spokane for another round of fundraisers this afternoon.

I fonally got a glimpse of the last one that flew over a minute ago... seemed it was blue with a white top.... or was that white with a blue top??? hmmmm... it was one of the two. They've been circling all over for the past half hour though.

I live across the street from the main Microsoft complex... maybe it does have something to do with the chinese / Gates meet today..

My office is in Eastgate. When we get helicopters overhead they're usually the traffic guys circling over an accident on 90.

The traffic cams show what looks like a police motorcycle on the overpass for 148th over 520. Not sure what's up with that.

If you look directly into the Sun for several minutes, do you see a Host? If not, make sure you're logged in and try it again. Everything will become apparent.

My fiance and I saw a Blackhawk fly low and fast by our apartment window when we used to live on Minor near downtown Seattle. We found out that they were running drills of some sort. Quite a sight.

The preferred terms are "helicopters of color" or "Aerial-American."

What do they look like? Are they big and loud with twin rotors or do they look more like the kind that might fit 2-4 people?

That was just the first chalk coming in and setting the perimeter...I'd stay away from the window for a few hours...

Oh, and if you hear another group of helicopters coming, be afraid...

Be very afraid...

;)
