Returning home after just two days in Eastern Washington, I realize even more how my life living in Mukilteo for 25 years has changed. It used to be so peaceful. The noise from planes every half-hour has sure affected any peace to be had in my backyard gardening or entertaining friends on my back deck. No one can be heard in conversation until the plane passes overhead!
It’s tough inside as well. Whether or not I want to wake up early, airplane noise ensures I do. The fact I might have more convenience in getting to an airport closer to home the one time a year I may fly somewhere certainly is not a good trade for the daily impact on our lives!
I’m hoping candidates for local offices when elected can keep any expansion and further impacts on our lives from happening!
