Well yes the behavior of my dog definitely puzzled and upset me. It got to the point I decided to trust her instincts and avoid the fields. I can not
tell if it was the fields themselves and what might be going on underground that scared her, or if there was something about being under the open sky
that disturbed her. I do live in an area where the mysterious rumbling has been heard and I also had an extended and unhappy experience with low
frequency vibrations nearly driving me nuts in 2004 shortly after my baby was born. That lasted several months and I never completely learned the
cause. They were installing underground cables for Verizon FiOS service around that time but the vibrations continued well after installation
activities moved completely out of the area. I've heard other types of digging work since then and nothing produced that maddening hum that seemed
to bother only me. My husband could not seem to detect it, but faintly on occasion. To me it was a significant hum at my skull.
I got some really amazing attacks of Vertigo last night and I'm not sick at the moment. I was sick last week with a nasty stomach bug and runny nose
but I'm fine now. I got that kind of vertigo before and during and right after the VA quake so, between my vertigo and the reports of odd animal
behavior here, I won't be shocked if we have another quake in this region.
As for hawks, we have a ton of them. Some of these huge birds may even be eagles, too. Having these birds around in noticeable numbers started about
this time last year. Before that, they were not a common sight where I live. And the few we had, kept more over the pure agricultural areas. They
did not circle and fly over suburban yards like they did this year. Even my dad who lives just outside of Washington DC in a very old blighted noisy
suburb has seen them. Unlike me, he knows birds and has said he has definitely seen eagles. What is odd to me about seeing them is I never have seen
them actually catch anything. You'd think with all the circling and swooping these huge birds do, and with all of our squirrels, field mice and
chipmunks, I'd see one of these huge birds catch a meal. But I have thus far never seen such a thing.
We have had spiders in massive abundance this year. We have web spiders and hunting spiders of all sizes and kinds. It's been a bumper crop for
spiders this year. Yet we still have a cricket population explosion in my yard, how odd. I guess the bugs heard we don't use pesticides! Still the
pesticides have taken their toll in our town. I saw very few butterflies this year anywhere.
One more thing I noticed about my dog that I forgot to mention, is that she has smelled a few of the mushrooms that have sprouted up around here and
her reaction is interesting. Now this is a dog who is always looking for something to eat, every minute of everyday. She even eats poop! So she will
sniff anything that catches her eye. Well every time she sniffs a mushroom she leaps back like her nose got burnt and goes on to step carefully away.
I have no conjectures. It's just an observation. She has been known to eat cooked mushroom on occasion.
