Journal Journal: i heard the sound of rustling against bushes 1

While sitting on the patio around 11:40 pm tonight (Wed May 28), I heard the rustling of folage, as if someone or something was in some bushes or rubbed up against them. The noise was coming from the northeast, as if in the neighbor's yard or perhaps in our own yard right around the garage. It was quite loud and I assumed it was either a person or a cat. I have heard this in the past and it was due to a cat.

Within about two minutes, I heard various mechanical noises normally attributed to a car or truck from nearby. One sound I heard was the hiss normally assaciated with hydraulic brakes as most large, commercial trucks have. Soon after that, though, I heard the sound of a car's tire spin against the pavement and the associated vehicle speeding away.

Soon thereafter, I visually inspected the area and nothing was found amiss.
