We had some excitement here the other morning. We were having breakfast
when we heard an odd, low rumbling that sounded either like a distant
large diesel truck starting up and taking awhile, or a series of
distant explosions. It wasn't enough to rattle the windows, but it
scared all of the birds, including Beaker, who took off and flew to me.
It was the meteor that's been in the news. We knew it wasn't something
normal, but never thought about a meteor. They've found pieces of it
about 30 miles from here as the crow flies. : )
