We heard it as well off and on for about two-three hours between 1am and 4am... Sounds like Artillery of some kind. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is underground blasting going on around the area, or maybe Fort lewis may be doing night time artillery training?
It sounds like its way off in the distance, but it oftens sounds like a HUGE Explosion, rattles windows and the house, ground, everything.. Sometimes they are small but come in groups,,, Booms for a few minutes then a quiet recess then it comes back again... Anyone else?
