We had a storm that knocked-off the electric from 8:30pm until 1:30 am.
Since it is a rural area it takes a while for the electricity to come back
on. Around 11 pm because of the heat I decided to sleep on the couch in
the living room. I had the windows opened liberally in an attempt to catch
some type of breeze. I could not rest because it was hot, sticky and just
uncomfortable. While I was lying there on the couch I could hear some dogs
off in the distant causing a big disturbance. Ok, no big deal. Shortly
after that I hear what sound like a different set of dogs barking and causing
a ruckus just a bit closer. I wondered what was going on but still ok,
no big deal. Then it started with dogs just down the road, even closer.
So I looked out the windows but because of the darkness I could not see
anything. I went back to the couch and to lie down. As I was attempting
to rest I literally saw and felt a shadow cover the window that was blacker
than the black inside and outside the house. It startled me so badly that
I immediately grabbed for the flashlight convinced that someone was standing
outside the window peering in at me. Nothing. Now it could not have been
a neighbor since the nearest one is at least an acre away and no one else
in the house was up. I verified that.
Now about the tracks, this past Friday evening we had another storm. No loss of electricity this time. The following day I went out messing around the yard and discovered these tracks. At first I thought it was a dog but I notice like an arch, ridge and heel. The tracks seemed to come from nowhere and disappeared. I thought at first the one track could be an anomaly but there are at least 2 others. They were in a grassy part but they still have that deep back indention. After taking the first set of pictures I put the date and time stamp on my camera for documentation. I used the fly swat as a scale because I did not want to wait to search around for a ruler.
