I guess that it isn't all that strange as the season is filled with mystery, especially for a child. Today though, the mystery is mostly for adults and is brought to us by Mother Nature!
Since long before the advent of supersonic flight, immense booms have been heard emerging from clear skies. No explanation has been found for these so-called sky quakes. There is no sign of lightning (which can travel long distances – even in clear skies) and no other human explanation for why the sky suddenly booms at the earth.
Some believers may consider this evidence for extra-terrestrial activity while sceptics continue to try to find a scientific explanation. Scientists – so far unable to explain the phenomenon – have resorted to explaining it away as one or all of the following: radio waves, solar activity, and even submarine activity (despite the sounds being heard miles inland).
Sometimes we just have to admit that Mother Nature outdoes us all when it comes to mysteries! Certainly keeps them interesting, doesn't She?
Coffee on the patio this morning. I'll share some Clementines with everyone, OK?
