I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I didn't see it going back to December. Last night I was relaxing in the rec room on the second floor of the Rosewood FD, waiting for the evening episode of Life and Living to come on. At around 1600, I heard the helicopter. Perfect! I had already been inside for about an hour and all the windows had sheets over them. I continued to read and wait for the show. But an hour went by and I could still hear the chopper overhead. Probably not a good thing. At 1750, I heard glass breaking downstairs over the continued sound of the chopper. Yup, time to go! It was a harrowing experience, as I was already tired, and the chopper followed me until 2100, so a full 5 hours of the stupid thing overhead. But after an uncomfortable night's sleep in the chair in the projector room of the drive-in, and dodging a couple hordes on the way back, I made it back to the deserted station.
But how is it that the helicopter spotted me? As I said, I had been inside for well over an hour prior to hearing it. The second floor has 4 windows in front, and all of them were covered. I did have the lights on, and I discovered that my exit window was open. But the TV was on low (and not broadcasting anything), and I was sitting reading several squares away from the window.
