Isn't it too early for April Fools?

It started to rain a little while ago so I opened the door to enjoy it, then this sound started.

Loud, really loud thumps. Which for some reason made me think of a giant's loud tread.

Then the noise got even louder. Like whatever it was, was heading my way. As the noise got louder, I felt it vibrate under my feet.

I looked out all the windows and couldn't see what it was, even went out on the porch, but the almond trees that surround my house are really tall now, so it was hard to see. 

But I do know that noise wasn't thunder and I kept thinking of those weird noises that have been reported and heard all around the world.

Oh, thank goodness just stopped.

Now all I need is a loud voice saying, "Ha, ha, April fools!"

I swear that the squirrels around here wear combat boots as they walk across my roof. And why do they sound like a human tromping around up there?

I hate those unidentified noises! Just scares me to death.

Hi E.,

We don't have squirrels, just rats in the attic and they were noisy too.

About the noise, my husband said a mile from our house some people were putting in a well, but that seemed like too much noise for pipes being shoved down into a well hole.

You're too funny Janice, I have too many unexplained noises in this old house to let any of them freak me out.
Loved your post. :}

Hi Lynda,

Thank you.

I live in a hundred year old house and I hear noises all the time too, but usually I just tune them out. This noise was very loud and repetitive. It went on for roughly an hour and a half.
