Big boom on Saturday night?

Anyone know what the loud boom or explosion was on Saturday night at about 10:10 p.m.? We heard it out in Lakeside and thought it was a gunshot, but found out the next day that somebody also heard it out by Mcquade safe harbor, which is quite a ways from us.

People still have fireworks left over from last weekend. Isn't that most likely?

McQuade is 5 miles from Lester Park. That would be a pretty big firecracker.

I heard it near 43rd Ave E and it sounded like it was very close, but it may not have actually been. It echoed around the neighborhood in a strange way. I figured maybe a firecracker gone wrong or something?

I heard a big boom in Lakeside last night -- somewhere between 7-10...thought maybe leftover fireworks -- but a pretty big boom.

Lindap's sewer line?

This was just one real loud bang. Normally if someone is setting off fireworks it would be several, I would think. But this was really loud and only one. Possibly someone got ahold of one big commercial one, or an old military shell like the guy in ND who blew his head off had???

Anyone lose power ... or a squirrel. When those trash can sized electrical transformers get shorted out and blow it sounds like the earth is opening up.

I heard it too, right around 41st Ave East & Superior. Sounded very close as well.

Sonic boom from one of the 148th out playing over the lake?

Lord Cthulhu, dead and dreaming 'neath the waves in R'lyeh, let one rip.

There were two huge explosions today around 1 p.m. Could've been sonic, they were really loud, but still sounded somewhat distant from Lakeside/Catholic Church area. Tall ships firing cannon at civilians? Or maybe it was Meteor shit?

I'm afraid that was me.

My money is on Tall Ships firing for a demo.
