Snap, crackle and pop

There must be some major humidity changes going on in the house. Last night as I was drifting to sleep, a huge snap awakened me, followed by stuff rolling around. My curiousity got the best of me, so I got up and walked around until I saw what happened: A big beam snapped down the middle which freed up one of the pegs which concealed the lag bolt holding the beam in place. The peg was what was rolling around.

A few hours later, at four in the morning, another enormous crack--almost like thunder--and apparently another beam formed another new crack.
