Wisconsin town plagued by mysterious booming noises

Postby Flesh Thorn » March 21st, 2012, 11:18 pm

CLINTONVILLE, Wis. – Bemused curiosity is turning into worry and aggravation for families in a small Wisconsin town longing for peace and quiet after three nights of mysterious booming noises that have sent some residents into the streets -- sometimes still in their pajamas.
The strange disturbance sounds like distant thunder, fireworks or someone slamming a heavy door. At first, many people were amused. But after a third restless night Tuesday into Wednesday, exasperation is mounting. And some folks are considering leaving town until investigators determine the source of the racket.

I was surprised to see FOX reporting on this this morning as Clintonville is not the only place this has been occurring. Quick Google search you will see this is pretty expansive and of course the conspiracy theorists have everything out there from "Fracking" to the US Gubment "building underground bunkers for the Apocalypse" as the source.

Have to admit it has my curiousity up. :? :?:

Lefty...you have some 'splaining to do...













Actually, local geologists are saying its (probably) the sub-surface granite and such responding to the exterme rapid temperature change we'uns are experiencing up here. Makes sense.

I read this in the "Comments" from the WSJ article this morning -


WSJ EDITOR: Joe, I want you to go to small town wisconsin and cover the bang in the night story. We need this yesterday, so get moving.
JOE BARRETT: Who do you think I am, George Noory?!
WSJ EDITOR: And be sure to take a photo of the hot girl in town, or from the next town over
JOE BARRETT: Who do you think I am, Ansel Adams?!
