Two geese honking earlier across the parking lot. Heavy overcast, humid with a chill. Big plane sounds, not a jet, a glimpse of it leaving through a break in the clouds. Too far to identify. Deep, full throated engine, props.

Then again I hear it hours later, but the cloud cover has raised, not gone, just gone higher and I saw it pass overhead. High tail, four engines, distinctive wire coat hanger shape. B-17’s. The most interesting birds to pass over in quite a while
