Loud/Huge Bangs

Anyone else hear 3 massive bangs this morning in the Zug area about 05:00?

It didn't sound like fireworks, more like military ordnance. As much as my male machismo would like to claim, it for sure wasn't anything bedroom related ;-)

There were some huge thunderstorms coming in from the west,around midnight at Basel, although not quite what type describing, unless you were asleep at the time and missed the rest?

There were storms in that area last night apparently. I slept right through them.

Storms, plonker.

Either that or Zürich was invading Zug.
