Really we did... and we do several times a week!
No - not the "Gee that was a Blast!" kind of thing - but the "Wow that was a Blast" as in 'sirens in the background, pause, BOOM, rumble, rumble' kind of thing.
Actually it's not right here at the Stone House - it's just beyond the next road over... at the Quarry.
I was happy to learn of the Quarry the other day as it 'splains that strange boom/rumble I've heard/felt around here every once in a while. I never put it together with the siren off in the distance because our town has a volunteer fire dept and hearing a siren is a regular part of life here at the Stone House.
I am also happy to know I'm not crazy... well - um, not so's you'd notice anyway.
