Anyone live in Stafford and is home during the day and hearing big booms all the time? The business office in my neighborhood said it was Quantico but man these booms shake my house and it is almost daily. I live in Aquia Harbor so was just wondering if anyone else feels or hears them?

I don't live in Stafford, but DH works  at Quantico and said they test weapons almost all the time.  If he is near a window, the window will shake.

Well all I have to say is NO ONE MESS WITH QUANTICO THEN!!! Because I am a pretty good distance from base and it feels like I am under attack or we are having an earthquake. My husband also works on Quantico but he doesn't feel or hear any of it...I wonder if he thinks I am crazy. It really works my nerves though because I scared of earthquakes. LOL

lol I woke up to my house shaking today!  I haven't heard it in a while, but they do it fairly frequently.  Are you new to the area?

I know there are train tracks in the area(they are about a mile from us) and when freight trains come through, they make a loud racket.  Could it be a train?

My father used to work on the navy base in Dahlgren(sp).  When they tested it was over the water so the places on the water several miles from them would hear/feel more then those on the base.

Yes I just moved here earlier this year. I live in Aquia Harbor and it feels like they are doing whatever it is they are doing in my back yard.
