Though I did not describe how I feel in that post....honestly, now I cannot quite remember....
My girlfriend was having a problem with headaches around that time, though I cannot be sure they were related......

I spend most of my time here at ATS lurking around sifting through what seems to be an increasing amount of bs threads.
I actually ran across this thread about 3 weeks ago and added it to my subscription list so that I could come back and see how this had
progressed....I never really had any intention of posting here but earlier tonight at around 7:40 pm EST I heard these noises.
I live in the southwest portion of VA. Earlier tonight I was cooking and started to hear this really loud noise outside. I can only describe it as the
rumblings of a jet engine and at first....for the first minute or so...that is what I thought it was.
Now before anyone says, "Well that is probably what it was".....NO....I can tell you right now that is not what it was. I am very familiar with the
sounds of jet engines and this was no such noise. Yes, it did have that familiar "rumbling" of a jet engine but without the fading effect of a
passing jet. It was constant. This lasted for a little over 4 minutes. Every dog in the neighborhood was going crazy. Strange thing was, they were not
just barking....they were all howling/barking. If anyone lives near many people with dogs....it is that howl they let out when an ambulance is
approaching or passing your house....it was that kind of howl.
Now I have lived in this area for basically my entire life....I have heard jets fly over nearly everyday of my life and NEVER in my life have I
noticed the dogs acting in such a way because of a jet. Even when it was a low-flying, loud jet.....Indeed that is one of the things that stands out
in my mind about the noise.
To describe the noise.....like I said it was like the rumbling of a jet....It sounded sort of like rolling thunder with an intense wind blowing at the
same time (though the sky was mostly clear and the wind was relatively calm at the time).....
Very strange indeed....
The first thing I thought about was this thread....I called my mother to confirm that it was heard places other than here.....(She lives about 12
miles from me and she heard it as well) It was also confirmed by my live in girlfriend and a roommate who were on the porch listening to this
"rumbling" the entire time.
Am searching for more personal experiences from others at this time.
Oh....Almost forgot to add that my girlfriend said she heard this noise the other night when she woke up at around 3 am EST.....
Also called my grandmother who said she had her T.V. up pretty loud tonight but did hear a similar strange sound a few nights ago (not sure what night
it was exactly....she gets her dates mixed up frequently) when she woke for something to drink in the middle of the night...She also claimed it was
around 3 am EST when she heard this....though she wrote it off to passing jets....though she did note that it continued much longer than what she
usually hears from jets passing....(Again...not sure how long...but she did say more than 10 minutes)
