Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your lovable doggie reporter Chester L. W. Stephens.
I was just enjoying an ear scratch, when all of a sudden there was a loud thundering noise! It wasn’t the garbage truck. It wasn’t a thunder storm. In fact, the weather today was fine, clear, and cool with a nice refreshing breeze. Lots of big, puffy, white clouds were floating in the blue sky, and the sun was shining brightly.
|Where's it coming from?|
To my surprise, our ghostwriter jumped up and ran out the front door.
She stayed out for quite a while, all with that roaring booming rumbling scary noise going on! My fellow canine Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens and I were getting pretty concerned. What was going on? It sounded like the noise was traveling really fast over the house and everywhere. We didn’t know which way to turn. It must be an alien invasion!
We were so relieved when she came back inside!
When we saw the pictures she had, we finally knew what all the noise was about. It was time for the annual air show at the Rochester International Airport, and that noise was from the USAF Thunderbird Fighter Jets. Wow! Mom said it was very hard to get a picture of them in the sky, even though they flew right over our house a couple times. They fly faster than the speed of sound, which means by the time you hear them, they’re already past you! She did manage to get a couple snapshots. Here’s the best one of the lot.
Oh, and a turkey vulture wafted by too, seemingly unperturbed by the noise (photo below.)
Here's a picture from online so you can get a better look at these amazing jets.
As soon as it started, the air show was over. Now about those ear scratchies …
