The sirens can be heard long before the lights are visible. Three police vehicles race down Highway 26, accompanied by a helicopter.
The CHP site gives me nothing useful by way of explanation, so I call the Calaveras sheriff non-emergency number to ask why there is a helicopter over my pasture.
"Well, the CHP is working a call in that area, so we advise you to keep your doors and windows locked, and we'll notify you if there's anything to worry about."
"And how will you notify me?"
"Uh... well, the CHP is working a vehicle pursuit right now, so keep your doors and windows locked and call us if you see any suspicious persons."
(CHP site still got nuthin'.)
