Sonic Boom on my Butt
Hope everyone across the Sunshine State enjoyed the sonic boom that signaled the return of the Space Shuttle to our atmosphere this morning (photo courtesy of NASA). I happened to be out walking my two dogs when the Space Shuttle Discovery returned to earth in its usual trajectory over Florida. When the heart-thumping, window rattling, ear splittng KABOOM sounded, my dogs took off like they'd been shot, knocking me on my butt in the process. There I sat in the wet grass, dirt up to my elbows with my dogs retreating rear ends obstructing my view.
I bet this kind of thing doesn't happen to people walking their dogs in Michigan.
