Did anyone hear 2 loud booms late this afternoon and early night?  Sounded like a blown transformer, a gun shot or some kind of loud explosion.  About 4:15 p.m. and 8:30 tonight.

There will no doubt be some mention of an artificial subterranean orifice. And that's a big'ol range from gunshot to transformer, much less to loud explosion. 

 

But seriously, this comes up on here from time to time all over the county and has for years. I know I've heard them myself down here around Nebo. There's never, at least in my memory, any real answer offered. I don't have a real answer either, just a theory. Given the length of time they've gone on, dispersal of reports as far as area, lack of any real explanation given some of the nosey ass folks on here (myself included), proximity to Dobbins and Lockheed. I've always kinda figured it's most likely some military pilots getting the occasional jolly. Just a theory.

I think it's tannerite too.

Have you ever watched the videos? I know it dangerous but I laugh like a kid watching those guys blow up some tannerite.

I tell you they are back working on the tunnels. They are building another Fred's where the Ryan's was at. They will have a tunnel entrance there that connects to the main Rockmart to Dobbins Tunnel. That will be Fred's South Tunnel Entrance and the original Fred's tunnel entrance will now be called Fred's Central Tunnel Entrance.

So that would be fairly close to Naval Air Station Pensacola? Hmmmmm.

Close enough.  Actually closer to Eglin as part of it is in eastern Santa Rosa County and we're in central Santa Rosa.  When they shoot the big guns at Eglin we can feel the concussion and sometimes hear it.
