Oh, my head. And my poor cat's sanity!

Quantico has been doing live fire, ammunition training, and demolitions today and will do more tomorrow and Saturday. The whole neighborhood was shaking. I thought we were having another earthquake...I'm just glad I don't live closer to the base. If I get rattled by the noise and shaking from 17 miles away, I'd hate to think about what it would feel like a mile away! Ouch. It's been going on all week, but it's only been bad today. I didn't even know about it until I read the paper this morning.

Rory is hiding under my bed. He hates noise and shaking. Poor kitty. No wonder he's been upset. He must have noticed the goings-on at Quantico even when I couldn't. Cats can sense things more than humans, after all. The tiniest boom at Quantico will have him running to hide.

Wow. And here I thought it was bad when SpaceX scared the crap out of us a few years ago when they tested their Falcon rocket one night. Really, who tests a rocket's engine at 10:15 at night?

At least it was over fairly quickly, not an ongoing thing like you describe. Poor Rory!


Totally off topic...
Have you heard about the bald eagle nest destroying that's going on in Norfolk's botanical gardens? Six so far, being done with a permit. AS an animal lover, I am totally appalled.

No, I haven't heard that! That is terrible. :( I guess now that they're off the endangered list, fuck 'em. *grrrrrr*

Oh, Quantico does this on a regular basis. The humans are used to it, but pets go batshit.
