Tornado overhead when I lived in North Carolina. I always heard it sounds like a train. I lived near train tracks at the time and when I first heard it, I naturally thought it was a train. Noticing the darkness outside from the storm, I suddenly realized it was a tornado!!!! Very scary that day!
Thanks for the chance to win. I am really loving audible while working.
When I was in college, my friend and I were traveling from outside Philadelphia to Washington, DC. There was a bad car accident. Plastic furniture flew out of the back of a pickup on to the interstate. Drivers were slamming on their brakes. Horns were blaring. One car got hit by a big truck. The truck’s brakes squealed and then there was an awful metal-on-metal sound. When we looked back, the back half of the car was gone. There was no back end, rear tires or backseat anymore. Anybody riding in the backseat would have been killed. This happened in 1989 and I still feel sick to my stomach when I think about it. I think about it when I see a truck with unsecured cargo in the truck bed or a car with stuff (like a mattress) lashed to the roof or trunk areas.
Too-close-for-comfort, bone-rattling thunderclap, accompanied by a lightening strike that I could see and smell in an open field during a downburst of rain and wind.
One of the scariest things I’ve heard was in the woods behind our house. It sounded like a woman’s blood-curdling scream and found out later it was an owl. Whew!
A number of years ago when I was living in a trailer park I was awakened in the middle of the night by someone pounding on my door, screaming and crying. When I got to the door no one was there. I still don’t know if this really happened or if it was part of a dream.
The scariest sounds I heard are the screeching of tires with several loud bangs and then the sound of car horns and screaming and yelling of people.
I don’t think I will ever get over the screeching of tires. I could see mentally in my mind that the passengers are bracing themselves for impact that can’t be avoided.
A couple of years ago when we had first started the new school year, I was sitting at my desk in the library and the floor started to shake and I heard something that sounded like thunder. The windows showed a completely clear sky and bright sunshine and my first thought was all of the stories I’d ever heard about earthquakes. After it stopped, I went next door to the nurse’s office and asked if she’d felt it and she said she hadn’t felt a thing, and looked at me rather strangely. About 10 minutes later, she came running over to say that her husband’s flight had been delayed because, yes, there had been an earthquake and they were waiting to see if there were going to be any after shocks.
The scariest thing I ever heard was just recently. I was sound asleep and someone called my name. I jumped up and wondered who needed me. My heart was racing. I live alone and was scared that one of my kids needed me, but I thought if it was one of my children, they would have said, “mom”, not my name. This has happened to me before and it is very scary to hear your name being called while you are asleep.
Our family was having a camping weekend, a regular occurrence; the 2 boys were playing together – ninja stuff – and the 2 girls were exploring close by. Everyone knew the rules about staying within shouting distance but my daughter(4) & her half sister(9) got turned around when they heard me and they headed away instead of towards our camp. I called for everyone multiple times and the scariest sound I ever heard was the complete silence. I swear the birds stopped chirping. The boys came running up and I sent them to find the girls. I called my husband in off the water and we fanned out to search. My imagination took flight out there in the woods and every single sound was a wild animal and the next scariest things I ever heard… I was petrified for my baby. After about an hour we were considering our next option – I was imagining law enforcement, helicopters, spotlights, searchers, etc – when a truck came up the hill with our girls inside. The eldest followed the lake until she came upon a campsite, approached the campers, and was able to describe our spot so well that they brought them right to us. Whew! I never went camping again.
My brother-in-law and I visited a graveyard the day after a particularly scary visit to the same graveyard the night before. We were trying to find explanations for some particularly harrowing and unexplainable occurrences the previous night. As a walked past a large headstone of an angel, I felt someone brush my hair aside and whisper, “Michelle, listen to me,” in my ear. I paused to better hear whatever message my brother-in-law wanted to deliver. I turned, and he was on the far side of the graveyard, too far away to have touched me. He heard a voice at the same time, and thought it was me. Needless to say, we did not hang aroud to discover what the message might be. We departed with great haste.
