“The Boom”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in 16th Street Heights and I’m wondering if anyone else regularly hears a singular loud boom go off in the evening. I feel like it started in the summer around the time of the nightly protest fireworks, but while the neighborhood fireworks have pretty much stopped, this single loud boom continues.

It doesn’t seem to be every single night, but I hear it at least once a week around 7:30 or 8:30pm. I’ve variously wondered if it was a single huge firework, some kind of construction noise (though it’s always after dark), or if one of my neighbors has a cannon in their yard.

Anyone else hear this and can shed a little light on what the local boom might be?”
