Ugh, terrible news.
Last night, (March 6) around 11 P.M., I started receiving and reading tweets about a huge BOOM in the area. There has not been any official explanation and there may not be, but it’s fun to speculate! Take a peek at some of the convo:
@sackvilleinside: @sack_vegas wtf was that huge boom in sackville? It was loud enough could have been in Bedford.
@sackvilleinside: @sack_vegas yeah like 5 mins ago. Really loud by first lake drive. Def not a firework.
@davehessian: @sackvilleinside @sack_vegas my friend in Fall River just asked the same thing?!
@annehorsman65: What was that loud boom in sackville , Windsor junction about 20 minutes ago
@oceanboundmer: @sack_vegas I was in bedford heard something too, thought neighbor kicked the door for a sec. #boom
@PointZeroRadio: @sack_vegas @sackvilleinside Any word on what that loud boom was? We’ve got a ton of people calling in asking!
@sackvilleinside: @PointZeroRadio @sack_vegas no idea but it seemed to be heard in beaverbank sackville and fallriver.
@Laker_PatHealey: @sackvilleinside @PointZeroRadio @sack_vegas it’s on FB too people in FR Village heard it. I do not know.
So…what was it? I have had people suggest a meteor or plane breaking the sound barrier and I have also had a “Frost Quake” mentioned. Apparently frost quakes happen from time to time out west and in Ontario. It’s during a cold snap and the ground cracks creating a huge BANG! Something definitely went on, does anyone out there have any info?
The link below is about poor snow removal causing commuters to park off terminal and getting tickets. I have had people tweet about this issue at me as well.
Even when no snow is present, there are times when the parking lot is full, especially at the Cobequid one. These issues need to be adressed by #HRM. We are doing our part with a lot of residents using public transit and adjustments by Metro Transit need to be made to keep up.
Have a read, folks. Scary stuff.
We all know there are only a few months left before this wonderful little school is closed for good. I always hear from ex students and enjoy the stories they have. There is a Facebook page (link below) set up for sharing memories, pics and whatever else comes to mind. Plans are in the works to give it a proper Sackville send off! The PTA is selling mugs and keychains to raise funds for the event. Check it out and be sure to join the group and share stories, ideas or whatever else you can think of. There is a similar thing happening for Gertrude Parker and I will be sharing that info soon.
