Last night something woke me up at about 3:30 am, I didn't know what it was, however my wife roused up and asked "what was that noise?" I asked, "what noise?" She said she heard a loud screaming sound. I asked, "did it sound like it was in the house?" She said, it sounded like it was in the room. Of course, I think someone is in my house, so I grabbed the shotgun and went exploring. There was no one in the house or around the house. I went back upstairs and laid down, and my wife quickly went back to sleep. I didn't go back to sleep so easily, I actually heard loud foot steps in our room, so loud that I could hear it over our box fan. (I sleep with a box fan on high to drown out noise, so I sleep better.) Possible natural explanations: 1) We live in a town house, so our neighbor may have murdered his wife. JK They are an old couple who have lived there for 20 years, so she or he may have had a nightmare. However, the sound seemingly would have been somewhat muffled considering the walls and the box fan. 2) This is an Townhouse community, so there may have been some night owls around the complex. However, on my walk around I didn't see anyone. This would also not account for the clear footsteps that I heard. If I had to guess, it would be option one, but have not had the opportunity to broach the subject with the neighbors to find out for sure. Nevertheless, it kept me up for the rest of the night.
