I live right near ITM, pretty much directly under the approach to 32L, and on the way to work I noticed that planes weren't approaching 32L from the usual direction (from the southeast), but were rather taking off facing that direction (southeast). It was the first time I've seen that in the 2 or so years I've lived near ITM, even on days with high winds. I suppose that explains it.
