Speaking of being within 7 miles of fireworks....I lived in Shakopee....Valley Fair is technically in Shakopee...(our State's 6 flags amusement park
type place) they have large firework displays on some weekends...I couldn't hear them other than a distance echo of the finale, and only if I was
outside, and only if no one was talking or any car was driving by......less than 7 miles as the crow flies......
so........if Savage and west Bloomington heard the same boom, then it is on the news now....because if you got in your car in Savage, on hwy 13 and
drove as fast as you could to either 169 or 35W, you couldn't get to this guys house in 7 minutes.....remember he said he heard the boom coming from
the North....Savage is crow flying south.

Ah, I had forgot about him saying it was North.
Google says the towns are 7 miles away, 10 minute drive. However, Google is picking the dead center of each town.
Given those exceptions, they didn't hear the same sound. If the Savage man had his car alarm go off, the op would have been hit much worse.
But I still say we hear the fireworks display in a town 7 miles from our house.
Either way, I suppose the op has decided it was fireworks.
