March 26, 2008 Davenport, FL BOOM!!!
Wow! At about 8:25 PM, March 26, 2008, we heard a loud BOOM and the trailer moved a bit. We thought something had struck Monty. I went outside and the neighbor was parking his truck in front and at first I thought he had backed into Monty. When he was puzzled about a loud boom he had heard, too, we discovered that it was the sonic boom from the Space Shuttle breaking the sound barrier during its re-entry and landing at Kennedy Space Center, about 50 miles or so east of here. We saw the liftoff a while back during the fantastic, beautiful night launch and were rocked by the landing. We are so fortunate - we not only have seen history being made, we also felt it.
