At about 1215 last night my wife and I were woken up by a deep sounding pound on the side of the house. It sounded like it was right outside our bedroom and it was strong enough to rattle some stuff on the walls. I instantly jumped out of bed and checked outside the window; my wife went and checked on the kids. Everything seemed fine. I go outside expecting to see something like a beer bottle or brick or something beside the house but there was nothing. There were a lot of cops and fire trucks nearby and i I wondered if it was related. After everything settled down, I lay in bed trying to figure out what that could have been. It was a deep sound not like somebody banging on the side of the house or throwing something at it. Anyways, I chalked it up to the zombie apocalypse and went to bed. The next morning I see this headline: Generator causes van to explode WAVY.com A damn generator inside of van blew up 2 blocks down from me. Apparently it exploded with enough force the shockwave shook the house. My wife and I had a nice chuckle at this. We remarked on how ridiculous we must have looked running around the house with her Kahr and my XD in hand.
