In the Northeast, storms take on similar characteristics and patterns as the Midwest, only less frequently and severely. During the summer, air-mass thunderstorms are an almost daily occurrence over central and southern parts of Florida.

ever think.... especially with "satellites falling" out of the sky every 2 weeks
(twice so far, but more to come)....that these booms reported on ATS and
newspapers for the last 3-4 years...
may be meteors? without a flash? just exploding in the stratosphere or upper
troposphere? (and why are there so many recently?)

Also, the approximate time that OP says he heard the incident and the times of weather data you posted for Oct. 2nd are way off.
Just a helpful hint you might want to edit them.edit on 3-10-2011 by upgrayeddc310t because: typos

Sonic booms don't last for 1/2 hour to an 1 hour. At least not to my knowledge unless our technology has leaped into the future by 20,000% and we are no traveling at a thousand times the speed of light.
I beg to differ. Have you ever been in the military? It happens a lot.
And, to make things more accurate, these reports are not constant booms, but reverberated booms, heard at intervals over 1/2 hour to an hour.
You could be talking about a squadron all taking off, each getting to altitude and then punching the sound barrier in sequence. They very rarely all do this at once. Also, they continually go back to lower altitude, form up, do a touch-and-go (a simulated landing used to train pilots), and then go up again sequentially and do the same scenario over again. Totally in the realm of possible, and in my opinion, probable.
