Boom Heard - Possible Meteor Impact in Northern Nevada

I live in Reno. I can tell you that this is one day I'll remember my entire life. The impact was strong enough it shook my house and sounded like it was right here in the neighborhood. I went outside to look for results of the explosion to see if emergency services needed to be called. I knew it wasn't an earthquake right from the start and because the Lyrid meteor shower peaking this weekend it occurred to me that was what I felt. My gut instinct is it did hit the ground.
