THE ATMOSPHERE FARTED

So, last night around quarter 'til 10 there was a big ole rumble outside. A rumble so big that our house shook...just enough to spook me and send Betsy, one of our cats, who was sleeping with our daughter into a frenzy. It was a rumble loud enough to cause me to say, "What the hell?" while on the phone with my father. It was a rumble loud enough to send Adam outside to see what could have caused the rumble...even though he swears he didn't hear it (men...seriously).

I thought it was a thunderstorm, but the star lit sky totally destroyed my theory...not to mention that my quick search of The Weather Channel's website showed no green on the radar in our general vicinity. So, we just kind of brushed it off. I mean, there weren't any sirens blasting after the boom and we didn't see or hear anything else until this morning...

Apparently we missed one hell of a space show because when I woke up this morning the news was all a-buzz about the different things people saw: fiery orange streaks, shots of white blue light, a ball the size of a grapefruit, a bright object traveling in the sky that was as big as a refrigerator (really??). What people thought was a meteor turned out to be space trash barreling it's way through our atmosphere and hurling itself towards the earth. Good thing it didn't land on my house...that would be one hell of an insurance claim to deal with!

Updated to say, well, I guess it wasn't space trash at all...or at least that is what's being said today:

Yeah, it shook the house enough to rattle the windows, make me cuss (like I need an excuse for that) and frighten the cats.

I just find it funny that the hubs didn't hear a thing...but, then again, that man could sleep through WW3...but he was awake when the boom happened!

I'd have pee'd my pants!! :)

And started heading for under my bed and making sure I had glasses of water all over (cause isn't that what defeated the aliens in N.Shamlawhatever movie?)

Do you ever come back to Hawaii for visits? Family still here?

Thanks so much for visiting me on my SITS day....making the rounds. Wish me luck.
