Very funny , according to specialists it was the frost but they could be wrong. I've personally heard it , and was coming from the sky above not ground.
It sounded identical to what i've heard when i was young back in eastern Europe which was the exploding sound of MIG fighting jets reaching the sound barrier.
So yeah i think there was an object in the sky reaching the sound barrier producing that louder boom not icy frosting crap...

Funny there is a comment on that article from a person coming from the same geographical and political environment reinforcing my believes.

"
Shankovich                     •         13 hours ago    
I don't want to be that "crazy guy", but I think it was a sonic boom. Russian aircraft at least once a month breach or approach our airspace up North, so I wouldn't be surprised if interceptor aircraft were up at 40,000 ft going super sonic to get up there fast. Also, keep in mind Russia recently talked about taking more control of the Arctic; I know they're always full of crap, but still."

It never cease to amaze me how full of crap the so called scientists are coming with all sort of untested and ridiculous explanation blaming nature for all the unusual occurences.

Is this a different one to the "mysterious noise heard in Canada" that you made a thread about earlier?

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Cryoseisms ? kinda goes with my theory of why these sounds are heard all over the world, ice breaking up in the artics ,ice cracks and ice rubbing or hitting the ground.Anyone hear their siding crack on their houses when it gets cold. Imagine a thousand times greater.

:huh:

You do realize that we had a severe ice storm 2 days before (called one of the worst in history) and that everything was covered in an inch of ice and trees and branches were popping all over the place right ?

You do realize that the temperature was -12C with a wind chill of -17C that night right?

You do realize that a sonic boom would have been reported by more than a handful of people and glass would have shattered all over the place right?

edit to add: this is what the entire GTA (Greater Toronto Area) looked like. Thats a tree in my front yard that is completely bent over by ice.

I used to live on a lake (I now live near the ocean). When the lake would freeze solid it made noises that could wake the dead!

I believe its the same phenomena and could have gone on the former thread.

Somebody wake me when one of these "booms" or "mysterious noises" is actually accompanied by something of interest physically taking place somewhere.

On a serious note, did the mayor get out again?

I believe that Rob Ford heard someone say about something about mysterious crack in the Toronto area, and he's volunteered to research it, and hopes to get back to us as soon as he's moderately coherent once again. :unsure2:

Truthfully I don't think so.The phenomena is well documented in Windsor Ontario even though they can't figure out what is causing it. Windsor is 3-4 hours away.

Christmas Eve ‘boom’ heard due to frost quake

A rather large boom heard around the GTA on Christmas Eve wasn’t Santa’s sleigh hitting rooftops but a frost quake.
CityNews meteorologist Natasha Ramsahai said tweets began coming in about loud noises around the dinner hour and peaked around midnight.
“You hear booms. You hear loud cracks. You hear what you think is a meteor – almost like a sonic boom kind of sound,” she explained.

"You cannot pass," he said. … "I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass."

When I lived in Ithaca, NY, Cayuga Lake would occasionally "turn over" and cause such booms - something about the ice shifting below surface.
