No, we’re not talking about the biblical kind.  Although, given our current “safer at home” state of affairs, it wouldn’t be hard to make that leap.

But, for the purpose of this blog post, we’re talking about the kind of thing that our current state of affairs made you realize.

For example, there is a low power radio station that we listen to as often as we can.  “As often as we can” usually means not very often because we lose the audio, quite frequently, when a passing plane interrupts the signal.   Yesterday we were enjoying one of the programs and commented on how clear the signal was and then realized why the signal was so clear.

There were no planes passing overhead!

Our Chicago area home is located in one of the flight paths for O’Hare International Airport.  Usually, during the day, we hear several planes a minute.  In fact, one day we decided to time them and found that, on average, we heard and/or saw a plane every 23 seconds.  Now, with airlines halting flights due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we’re lucky if we hear one or two an hour.

As much as we enjoy being able to hear more of our low powered audio favorite, when we realized the reason for the clear audio, we found it to be more than a little … unsettling.

Indeed, a revelation from our new, smaller world.

As more things reveal themselves to our eyes, ears and … hearts, we’ll share them with you.

And, as we travel through this uncharted territory, if you have any revelations to share with us, please do.  You can use the “Leave a Reply” section below this post.

We’d love to hear from you.

Stay safe!

    I know you are doing all you need to for your safety. On behalf of all who care about you, thank you. And please keep the recipes coming. Now would be a good time to work on that cook book. Just thinking.

    I have also noticed the lack of airplanes when I’m walking the dog, so quiet, particularly at night.
