The Boom

We finally heard it. That mysterious boom the Lost Coast Outpost and others have reported hearing around Eureka. Interesting the range of opinions about where it came from and what it might have been. 

As far as I'm concerned it very clearly came from the Pine Hill area, or at least from that direction. No way it was a car crash or shotgun as some have suggested. Sounded to me just like those boomers (mortars?) that you hear go off at fireworks shows down on the bay on July 4.

Nothing wrong with speculating, but if you actually know who or what is doing it, mums the word. As I suggested on the Lost Coast Outpost a short time ago, this has the potential of being a big tourist draw like Gulf Breeze, Florida or Roswell, New Mexico. Let the world keep wondering about Eureka's strange booms, and traveling here to hear to research them.

There was one in Henderson center on Halloween night. I saw the flash off the house across the street. Went out instantly and found plastic shrapnel that smelled of gun powder. Someone will get hurt someday. No cars or people other than neighbors were seen.
