All morning I have been hearing loud booming outside. I don't know what it could be...not thunder and not my imagination, that's for sure. I guess it could be construction. It's freaking out my family who is visiting. Any ideas?

I have actually been hearing the same thing and just tried posting a thread about this. What could it be!?

I have no idea, honestly. Construction? Something going on at Quantico? Sometimes that can be felt all the way here...preparations for the end of the world? Lol I joke, but I won't say it didn't enter my mind for at least a fleeting moment!

It's coming from Quantico Marine Base munitions training going on this week only.

Just found out it's blasting happening at Quantico. It drove me nuts all morning trying to figure it out! Apprently it's louder on overcast days.

Thanks for answering this question. I could hear it in Warrenton. WTH were they thinking doing this right before 12-21-12. I know it's b.s. but still.

I believe the booming is from the rock quarry off of Liberia Avenue on Quarry Rd., near the railroad tracks and just east of Euclid. The booming is the occasional blasting required to loosen the rock for processing.
