My neighbour, Chrissy, is a night owl like myself, and is up till about 4am most mornings.
On a few occasions She has told me that She spent the night painting rooms or moving furniture, so it’s no surprise to hear a grinding sound sometimes, as though a bed or wardrobe is being dragged along the floor.
I’ve heard this sound, from my bedroom, which is just a few meters away from her house, and have just waived it off as nocturnal redecorating.
A few days ago, I was talking to Chrissy about this and that and said that I heard Her moving furniture around 2am, But then She told me that She hadn’t been… which surprised me.
I heard it again last night, a loud grinding sound, lasting just a second or two, at around 2am.
Chrissy just phoned me to say that She heard the sound and asked if I had heard it… Well Yes, I did.
She told me that there was a loud grinding sound, like I mentioned earlier, plus some bumping which carried on for another few seconds.
I told her that should I hear it again, I will write down when it happened and we can compare notes.
I also suggested installing “sleep talker” onto her iPad, An app which records what you say in your sleep, it only records when it detects noises. (it’s on iPhone too).
David, who lives with Chrissy, went into the roof space to repair the antenna cable,
and claims that he was hit on the head by something heavy.
If anyone would like to play Ghostbusters, I think Chrissy would appreciate a logical explanation.
A friend on G+ asked about Water Pipes, that would work, it would certainly provide a loud sound. I have weird pipes too which can produce that kind of sound.
