Ok.....this post is getting a little too out there for me..
I'm a environmental consultant with a background in geology and have worked on a number of large "dig" sites and have done drilling oversight on
hundreds of bedrock monitoring wells.
Let's start considering some more likely, practical explanations for these phenomena you're reporting.
First off, I would contact your state USGS branch. They are pretty on-point with suspected earthquakes tremors and are very responsive (they live for
this $#&*). Many times a recordable earthquake occurs, there are dozens or even hundreds of "mini-quakes" both before and after the event, sometimes
lasting weeks. This is probably what you are experiencing.
Also, I've done some drilling down in your neck of the woods (Shepherdsville, KY - CSX Derailment). From what I recall, your lithology is karst
limestone. Very weak, soft rock with large pockets of water (sinkholes occur when these voids are exposed at surface). This type of rock isnt really
a good conductor, so I would say it's safe to rule out any kind of well or frac drilling causing this, unless it's within less than a quarter mile
from your house.
And this discussion concerning the underground tunnels/cities spanning the US is pretty funny, I'll give some of you that. Remember what a $hitshow
the "Big Dig" was in Boston? Well that was a 3.5 mile tunnel that took 11 years, 20 billion dollars, and thousands upon thousands of workers. I'm
not going to even begin getting into the logistics it would take to tunnel "7 km a day" as someone else on this thread suggested. But if you really
did have a gigantic tunnel being drilled below your house, you'd have one telltale sign - 1. Everyone's potable well would be dewatered, as the tunnel
would intersect them.
