Ok, me too. Not just the hum and rumbling, but other odd things, as well. We live NE of Atlanta, NE of Gwinnett, sort of half way between Gwinnett
There are no low flying planes to speak of here, except the rare and occasional private plane that goes over us to the Gwinnett Airport. Other than
that, Hartsfield Airport is far enough away that you can see the jets pass by VERY high, but don't even really hear them they are so high by then.
No major roads close by, no interstates. We live in the country.
So yes. Low rumbling noises, cannot pick it up on my cellphone, I tried. Tried a hand held pocket recorder, same thing. Can't afford atm to get
anything better, which is why I have stayed silent on the issue, but hopefully that will change in a few weeks, and I can get a better cellphone or
something. My cellphone is old, only takes photos, and only has the short memo recorder. Anyways.
A couple weeks or so ago, my husband and I are in our home office doing our things on our own computers, was a late Sunday night, about 1:30 am. We
hear a roar *over* the house... like a lions roar. It was LOUD. We sit here, both asking the other, "Wtf was that?!" We both refused to go
He said, "What if it was a bear or something?" We do have deer, but bears? I said, "OVER the house?!"
I got up and walked down the hallway and my cats were visibly upset by the noise. One was peeking out the glass on the back door when I came up the
hall, and she skulked away with her belly to the ground and her tail scraping behind her. Another cat was on the loveseat looking at the ceiling,
again her tail was low, hind end down, ready to flee, eyes wide, ears wildly twisting to pick up sounds. All of my cats were visibly disturbed, some
ran and hid.
A couple of weeks before that, my husband was home up in bed asleep, and I was down in the livingroom watching television, about 4:30 in the morning.
I kept hearing a strange sound, it sounded like a sick leaf blower was the best comparison I could come up with, and I sat up and turned the volume
down on the television. The sound reminded me of the old black and white movies where they showed a UFO dangling on an obviously visible string
swinging back and forth making the silly sounds.
But, thats the sound I heard. Again, outside, over the house, in the sky. It would fade slightly and get louder, but it was steady. It lasted about 20
mins. I called my husband and woke him on his cellphone, but he wouldn't get up and go out and look, and I am a big chicken. After about the 20
minutes or so, it just stopped, like it was never there at all.
We live somewhat close to a quarry, to which I have chalked up odd explosions that shake my house and rattle my windows, but that no one else seems to
notice. I have run outside and seen people going merrily about their day while my house foundation literally shook beneath me, rattling the window
panes for an instant, with a loud bang.
I have even reported this once last year on the Shake Map part of the website for UGS as a possible small earthquake. They only last a few seconds,
but they are loud and forceful, as if to be right under the house, not what you might think you would get from a distant quarry. In fact the one I
reported was the last time I felt/had this experience. It has given me cause for concern a time or two, over what my home may be possibly built upon,
but that's another story, I suppose.
That seems to have stopped, however, but it happened frequently for several years, enough to rouse me from a sound sleep (I sleep during the day as I
work at night).
