Vanity

Posted on 05/07/2014 8:32:35 AM PDT by Retired Chemist

I was sitting at my Computer here in Pinellas County ,Florida this morning and there was a loud boom and my house shook. News reports said it's related to military exercises in the Gulf Of Mexico. Anyone else hear it?

I’m 1000’s of miles away, so I didn’t hear it of course.

But I remember growing up in Southern California a lot of sonic booms and the house shaking. I think it was due to jets out of Edwards.

I thought your 'handle' was going to be self-explanatory.

(who knows what a "Retired Chemist" does in his basement).

F-22s are capable of supersonic cruise, and there’s a lot of them at Tyndall, not far away.

Charlie Crist it was because of Republican racism.

You know, if you hadn’t pointed it out to me I wouldn’t have remembered. I live right near a hospital and am used to commotion - there were some major ambulance and horn honking going on, and I thought it was lifeflight stuff, and my dogs were barking like mad. I am in North Pasco.

But now that you talk about it, I did hear some booms.

I’m right in the middle of Pinellas and I felt one boom and a mild aftershock.

Was it a “boom” boom or just a boom?

Because that will make all the difference in the answer.

Whatever it was, it was heard and felt over a large area, all the way to Lakeland at least.
