Ok

I am telling my wife the loud booms and occasional tooting noises are from the training facility as well. There is also a smell associated with it.

Do not panic. The latest round of storms in the area did not knock out power to the emergency command center in downtown EVANS. The Energizer Bunny was hired as a consulting associate by CC.

Apache helicopters over the dam. Explosions at Fort Gordon. Unexplained sonic booms in Appling. Military personnel in battle fatigues all over the place.

It is about time for another "domestic terrorist attack".
