    There's nothing like sleeping with the bedroom window open and waking up to birdsong instead of traffic noise and planes flying overhead. Or walking the trails with only the sounds of nature.

    I don't miss the hustle and bustle one bit. Even the air smells crisp and clean.

    Stay well everyone.

    That noise we don't hear is the sound of 10% of the American workforce now unemployed and that saddens me greatly.

    Personally, I miss the normalcy of planes and traffic and anxiously await its return.

    And, yes, stay well all.

    No, it's more like 16% and yes, I would prefer the economy was back to normal - just reflecting on the change and hopefully we can build back something healthier for our environment. After all, this is not the last we've seen of pandemics.

    2:30am departure to San Juan and 3:15am departure to San Salvador. Heard both loud and clear this morning. Is there not a time restricted noise ordinance for IAD? Cliff?

    No, there are no noise restrictions at IAD.
