Long time reader, this is the first post that made me join just to reply!
I noticed that there was another post from Ball Ground in the northeast corner of Cherokee County. My wife and I have heard the "roaring" noise for
at least 12 months, typically at night, more frequently on cloudy nights but occasionally on clear nights as well.
We both have a background in paranormal research and our original attack is to rule out the obvious. We do have marble mines close to us, but the
noises are made outside of their hours of operation, There is a railway close to us, but no trains are passing when the noise is heard. We are
within 5 miles of a very small airport, but the noise is not an airplane.
What we have heard is a constant "thrumming" sound, it drones on and on and very infrequently changes tone, volume or tempo. The strangest part is,
it seems to come from everywhere while not really loud enough to record. No trumpets, no whistling, just a consistent noise that is all-enveloping.
An emotional way to describe it is, if you have ever been at very high altitudes and surrounded by clouds. The clouds are above, below and to both
sides but you couldn't pinpoint where the cloud began and ended. What we are hearing is much the same.
No ideas, no theories, we have debunked the few things that would make sense for us to look into. We have on separate occasions had what we can only
assume are military helicopters fly over while the sound was occurring. No lights fore or aft, flying under 1000 feet, always in 2's never single. We
are over 35 miles from Dobbins and are not on any published military training flight line and do not have an explanation for this.
If anyone has any rational ideas to help us find an explanation for what we are hearing, we would welcome them. It has become all-consuming to us and
we have very different suggestions but no grounds to found them on.
