It sounds like someone is throwing snowballs at the side of our house... only they aren't. It's kind of spooky. We decided it must be ice contracting. Anyone else experiencing some strange noises?

I think the wind was whipping some of the ice off of our trees and it was hitting the roof. It was a very peculiar sound.

I have not heard anything, but our roof is two floors up from me so I don't think I would hear anything.

We used to live in a mobile home. It would also make those strange popping noise when it was cold.

I would expect that it has something to do with heat warming up the inside of the house and the building frame, making it expand, while the outside of the house is still cold and contracted.

OMG it did it all last night. Very loud popping noises. I would shoot straight out of bed. Needless to say, I didn't sleep wall at all. I'm afraid the roof is going to cave in.

same here..I attributed the noise to the wind blowing ice off of trees and hitting side of the house. I don't know what it was but it sure hit all of a sudden and out of nowhere..was freaky.

The husband thought the joists were snapping overhead. We too stayed up half the night trying to figure out what was going on.

At one point, my 9yo came into bed with us cause she said she kept hearing footsteps in the backyard.

It's a ploy I tell you.. make us all paranoid. lol

I saw the source today J.. I went to my favorite auction and got out of my car, almost got knocked over by a very cold wind... With that wind was hundreds of tiny little ice straws that had broken free of the trees. I was peppered with them before I ran like hell to get inside. I can see how that would drive you nuts.

I just thought it was a bat that got into my stash of Cabo Wabo tequila and was flying around drunk in my attic.
