Although we are not going out as often as we were, we still investigate when we can. After our article in the February 2010 New Xpress here in Butler, we received many e-mails and verbal confirmations about strange occurrences in our area. We still get reports from some of these people and have been remiss in sharing them.

One person, who lives in Rich Hill has sent us a few pictures of orbs appearing during daytime hours in strange places. He also has shared information on Bigfoot sightings in the Four Rivers area. We don’t do Bigfoot investigations because we have no idea what we should be looking for. We did drive down near this area one evening to see if we found anything strange. That was the evening we got the pictures of the burning tree. (see “A Message in Light”)

There are many investigators and UFO followers who believe that paranormal activity increases after a UFO sighting. Many people have reported strange, paranormal activity in their homes after a UFO sighting by one or more witnesses. In the early stages of our case, after our initial abductions, we had what could be described as paranormal activity in our home, still do. There are unexplained noises, objects being moved around and things that disappear for a few days and then show back up, not to mention the fact that there are shadows that move and we both, at several different times, have felt something or someone touch us.

There are also those that believe Bigfoot sightings increase where there have been UFO sightings.  Several people believe that Bigfoot is an alien race. It is listed on the 57 alien species that Clifford Stone says the government has catalogued.

These pictures I am posting are from the Rich Hill area where we found several images in our trips that indicate it might be a very busy area including “Bubba” under one of the larger bridges. The one of by the tractor and at the Indian ceremony were shared with us by our friend from Rich Hill.

The two most recent Bigfoot sightings were very close to the orb sightings and a few other “orange ball” sightings that have been reported to us.

The odd thing about these pictures is the time of day they appeared. Most orb sightings seem to appear after the sun has set.

Does paranormal activity increase around UFO sightings? Could the paranormal and extraterrestrial beings be related? The answer to that question may never be known for sure. No matter where you go to research any of this, you are bound to find those who believe the visitations we get are from beneficial beings and others who believe they are evil, possibly the spawn of the fallen angels. Either way, there is a lot of unexplained activity and sightings around the globe. The one factor that seems to be become more evident as reports come in, is their appearance in less populated areas like rural Missouri.

Places like these are perfect for them to hide what they are doing, what they might be building, or even serve as undisturbed feeding grounds. Many rural areas in our country hold acres and acres of wooded land that isn’t processed or commercialized, and with the many water ways, like those in our area, and the many caves and possible underground tunnels, they would have the means to move around, take care of their business unobserved and undisturbed.

Lights at the Sheriffs Dept.

Lights at the Sheriffs Dept.

Sunday, March 10, 2013 and it’s raining outside again. I wonder if we will experience the same thing tonight that we did last night. Butler, “The Electric City”, so named for being the first city west of the Mississippi River to have electricity loses power whenever the weather changes. If it rains, if it snows, if it is hot, or if it blows you should automatically start reaching for your flashlights. They usually get it back on pretty quick, and it usually only goes out in pockets.

If our electricity goes off, we can usually see lights on one block to the south of us, and one block to the north. If it is evening, you can usually see the glow of other lights around town reflected on the horizon or off the clouds overhead, but last night was different. Last night the whole town was plunged into darkness for close to two hours.

I had just set my watch ahead, from eleven to twelve, as we were getting ready to shut everything down for the night. The lights flickered off, not once or twice, but five times before we were plunged into total darkness. Luckily I already had a flashlight nearby because of the forecast of thunderstorms. Another odd thing about this was the fact there was no thunder near the time the electric went off. We heard a few very distant rumbles a few hours before.

What is strange about this scenario, is the fact that they flickered so many times before they went off, that the whole city, with the exception of the Sheriff’s office and the county jail was plunged into complete and utter blackness and the fact that it was off for so long. I have never seen it this way in the almost six years that I lived here and Richard says he doesn’t ever remember it happening this way in the almost thirty years he has been here.

Within a few minutes, I found myself standing at the north facing window of the house, looking out over a darkened city as I watched Richard walk down the sidewalk, north toward the square. I checked my watch, five minutes, ten minutes, fifteen minutes, twenty minutes I stood there shivering, not sure if it was fear setting in or the lack of heat in the house.

As I stood there, I realized “this is how it could happen”. One little town at a time, plunged into total darkness just about the time most people are getting ready for bed. Everyone just shrugs it off, goes ahead and says their good-nights and wanders off into the slumber of the unaware.

Whether it would be a military power, our own government, some radical militia group, criminals, a super storm or an actual alien invasion, how much simpler could you make it. Everyone wakes up the next morning, unaware of what might have taken place overnight. Maybe several have disappeared from their homes, maybe your block is surrounded by military trucks, or soldiers come knocking at your door. Maybe none of this happens right away and you just sit there, waiting for the electricity to come back on.

All it would take would be several smart bombs aimed at the right targets. Smart bombs originated with the Germans in 1943, how much more exact could they have been developed by now. A smart bomb is aimed at a particular target, with less explosive force to take out that target with minimal damage to surrounding property and structures. It has been determined that one or two E-Type smart bombs, strategically aimed could knock out all the power within their radius of effect.

We bought a little transistor radio a few weeks ago when the two snow storms that hit were predicted, only to find out that it would only pick up one station, the local station, which on weekends might be pre-recorded. We were unable to get any information that would explain this strange blackout.

Technology is a large part of our lives. People don’t buy daily or weekly newspapers like they used to. They watch the news on cable television, scroll through it on the internet, or listen to it with their earphones. No one waits for a letter from a relative. They simply e-mail, text or call them.

What would happen if the whole nation was plunged into darkness, or the whole world for that matter? If all the grids were taken down at once, there would be no way of communication.

Maybe it’s time to look into the way they lived in the middle ages. How did they cook? Where did their food come from? How did they protect themselves? How did they live?

Take into consideration that HAARP is rumored to have been the cause of some of these super storms while some scientists believe that a pole shift has caused the super storms that hit areas like New York, New Orleans and other states on the East Coast. Thousands were plunged into darkness for longer periods of times than we were. Maybe these are practice sessions to start teaching us how to survive should the technology and energy grids go by the wayside.

I guess it is time to get a better radio, stock up on more of each kind of battery and maybe look at a way to cook outside. Whether it is martial law, meteors or asteroids or sun flares, whether it is a military take over from our government or that of another nation or whether it is an alien invasion or a multitude of super storms, we could eventually find ourselves thrown back in time, to the days when people actually had to live without the conveniences and technology we have in our lives today.
