wow

The house shook, and there were two sets of double booms so strong that car alarms went off and the blinds moved. (I wonder if it's our proximity to Boeing Field?) All the neighbors running out of the house, dogs yapping everywhere.

It has been decades since I heard a sonic boom -- they don't usually let the military planes do them over land even at air shows, and Boeing killed the SST program when I was a kid, when we heard them more than a few times. The Concord and BA SSTs never flew here. The news source says someone breached presidential air space (Obama's in town), or something, and they scrambled some F-15s. Whatever the hell it was, it was intense, and the poor cats are total wrecks. Maybe this will convince them that someone knocking on the door isn't so bad.

Or maybe next we'll have another earthquake. That would be a wing-ding!

The whole building shook here (Renton). Noisy. I hope our cats didn't lose their tiny brains at home....
