That was explosive

Peoria, Arizona

My mom and I were just chatting away in my room. We were talking about dinner and something else when we both had the tinkle scared out of us. A loud explosion happened. It wasn't just a BOOM it was more like a loud boom with about 5 other booms after it. It was terrifying. We have no idea where it came from, my mom went to look outside and apparently a lot of our neighbors went to look as well. No one could figure out where it came from or what it was. Someone said gun shots, 1. I think after about 2 shots they would be done, not 7. 2. guns don't sound like that unless it is like a grenade gun. I play video games. I know how guns sound. Another said a car crash, well there was no screeching or glass noises. I was thinking maybe a gas line bursting, it has happened before in this neighbourhood, but so far no smell of gas. My last guesses were either someone was playing with really big bowling pins, something was knocked over because of the wind, or lastly fireworks. people do like to play with fireworks around here. So I wouldn't doubt the last one. Or maybe someone's meth lab blew up. It has happened here before to the house on the corner. So...I wouldn't doubt it. So freaky though. I don't need to hear about anymore explosions man!
