Weekend 2 Cents: The Creepy Thing on the Porch -- Iguanas 'Out of Control' in South Florida -- Footprints in the Snow


I recently received the following account:

The Creepy Thing on the Porch

I live in Ohio, in a Cleveland suburb. This occurred this past January. At 1:00am I woke up and was very disoriented as well as sick to the stomach. It took me a good hour to fall back to sleep. Over the rest of the day I had multiple unexplained bizarre sightings and apparitions. At 7:00am, I wake-up for morning shower with the intention of going to work. It is still very dark and I spot a creepy dark figure move across my back porch. It was approximately 3 feet in size. I was so frightened by the figure that I locked myself in my basement. No windows or ways to peek in. Around 7:30am, I hear unexplained noises, anywhere from a banging to a boom. Then a loud ringing in only 1 ear.

Early that afternoon, I decided I decided it was safe to leave and to drive to a friend's house on the outskirts of the city. As I am driving, I see a large diamond shaped light come from a patch of woods. The light started to fade and I could spot movement towards the car. It was a triangular craft with a dark graphite-like texture and color. The object moved away from the car and disappeared into the woods. I soon arrived at my friends and we talked about the strange appearances. By the time I leave around 4:00am the next morning, me and my friend arrive at my home at 4:30am.

Well, that little pygmy figure appears again at 7:00am right on the dot. My TV goes crazy, the only thing that happens from then on is us getting in my car, driving 2 miles out of town, stopping, vomiting and proceeding to the nearest church we can find. I speak to the pastor at the church at 8:00am and he tells me bad things are associated with my house, but this did not convince me.

So here I am 6 months later, writing to you looking for some sort of explanation to these frightening appearances. I have seen the little being twice since. Is this only the beginning of these odd appearances? I pray I never see the dark creepy thing on my back porch ever again. MK

NOTE: I talked to the witness, who intends to keep me updated on the activity. Lon

Iguanas 'Out of Control' in South Florida

South Florida’s not quite Jurassic Park, but it’s getting close.

Packs of green iguanas are swarming seawalls, roaming yards and parks, and leaving a path of destruction and filth in their wake. Like a shot of espresso, the hot summer sun has stoked activity in the cold-blooded creatures, which experts say may be at record numbers.

“This year is the most iguanas I’ve seen and I’ve been in business for nine years,” says Thomas Portuallo, owner of Fort Lauderdale-based Iguana Control. He says the invasive lizards are out of control with “many hundreds of thousands” creeping around Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.

Footprints in the Snow

“I remember one winter morning my friend and I were having breakfast in her very haunted house. Everyone that had been there had experienced something, and it was generally non threatening, just a bit spooky and perplexing. That morning (in Minnesota, US) a fresh couple feet of snow had fallen that night, and was tapering off. I noticed a tire swing on the tree in the backyard swinging, but the snow falling outside was falling straight down, and the property was bordered with large evergreen type trees that were not moving. The swing was moving with I guess I would say with purpose if you will. I must have had a look on my face as my friend looked out the window too, and noticed the bizarre swinging. And then her father said, look at that, footprints. There were a pair of footprints from what looked like the swing area and walked toward the house. The went right up to the side of the house and then nothing. To them, living there this was not too out of the ordinary type creepy. But has stuck in my head, and really scared me for some reason. Why a pair of footprints? Did they have anything to do with the swing? And how is it possible they just walk into the side of the house. No door. No windows...just worries me when the memory is something I am stuck on.” - Jenn Fox

Young Witness Describes Close Encounter


The following report was posted at NUFORC on June 21, 2018. I recognize the name of the investigator who supplied the report, so I believe that there is definite merit to it:

Siletz, OR - 6/6/2018 19:30: This investigator has over 30 years of looking into crop circles, cattle mutilations, UFO sightings and other cases including a search and rescue of a missing woman in Eastern Oregon. But this is my first hand report of a 'Close Encounter of the Third Kind'.

This incident comes by a phone call to my spouse on the late evening of 6 June 2018 at about 9:30pm, she received a call from her son. He is a former US Army veteran, former police officer and currently a security guard at a local casino. Watching my spouse's face as she was talking to her son, was a look of concern. She handed me the phone and said, "You need to hear this!" As I listened to her son, he was sincere about what they saw and encountered. The main witness was his girlfriend's daughter who is age 12. Given permission, I spoke with the girl for over 30 minutes asking specific questions. Here is a short summary of that chat:

-"What time and where did you have this sighting? About 7:30ish today, 5 miles south east of Siletz off a gravel road near Ojalla Road in the woods.

-"How far was this creature from you? "About 100 feet or so, standing 2 legs, pale grey height 4-5 feet quarter size eyes (dark brown) ribs showing, super skinny, no clothes head round oval, looked like no ears or nose, roundish bump where nose should be!"

-"How long did you see it?" "10 seconds first time and about 12 seconds the second time..."

-"What else did you see or hear?" "Birds were real quiet, then when it took off, the birds got noisy again. Prior to the sighting you could hear a 'buzzing noise'. Then sounds got echoing, that lasted about 20 seconds, then sounds in area got normal again. It, the creature moved unnatural, fast and quiet, no sound at all!

-"Did you see the whole creature? "Yeah, real skinny, ribs showing, thin like almost transparent, no clothes, quick movements..."

She went on to tell me the family checked that area for evidence and found only tuffs of black and white fur on the stump. The time I spoke with this young girl was 9:30pm the evening of 6 June 2018.

NUFORC.org

The following is a full written report from this 12 year girl of her entity encounter:

"The night of June 6th, 2018 me and my family decided to go for a drive up in the hills 5 miles out of Siletz, Oregon. We were out to find wood to make ourselves a bow. My mom's boyfriend "J" saw some sticks that were perfect for the bows so we cut them off the tree that they were attached to.

Then we went down the road and "J" saw some downed alder that could be used for firewood. I started hearing a faint buzzing noise but put it off as a bug in the car. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw the most bizzare thing ever. It was about 100 to 120 feet away from my moms car. What I saw was a human looking creature that was about 4 to 5 feet tall with pale grey skin. Its skin was so thin it was almost transparent and it was so skinny. I saw it a total of three times and this was the first. I saw it for about 10 seconds.

When I made eye contact with it everything went silent. The birds stopped chirping, everything was silent. Then it ran away. I told my mom and "J" and we thought ok we'll keep an eye out. Then I saw it again I knew that something was up there. And as I said previously it ran away, but it looked like it came from behind the stump it was standing by.

Then I said "Hey I saw it again. I think we should go up there and look around." We went up there and looked around and then while I was standing were I saw it the first time and I saw it again! It moved so quick when it noticed that I saw it. And for moving so quick it was incredibly quite. I yelled for "J" "I saw it again!" So we went over to where I saw the 3rd time and when we were talking it got really quite and voices echoed a lot more than the other places in the woods.

Near the site of the first sighting we found fur that resembled rabbit fur. It was black with brown tints to it and it stunk really bad! After trying to search for tracks we figured that it was to dry for it to leave tracks so we decided to head home."

Investigation summary:

I spoke with the primary witness, this 12 year old girl. Very sharp, and sincere about what she saw that evening. I do not think this was a fabricated fantasy, as I could sense the fright and excitement in this young girls voice, which lead me to believe it did happen.

Besides the young 12 year old girl, there were 3 others that experienced the echo and the buzzing sounds. The boyfriend, her mother and her younger sister. Other than the echo and buzzing sounds, to my knowledge none of these individuals suffered any other physical effects. As for the two listed, I have heard about this in the similar case in Salida, Colorado, UFO encounter in which the family had the buzzing sound during their UFO encounter. As for knowing the boyfriend for over 15 years, besides being a combat veteran in Iraq, he is a sound individual and is sincere in what he believes happen and there is no question in his mind that this girl saw this entity in the woods. All four truly believe this incident occurred and I am sure it will be a memorable moment for this 12 year old girl!

Daily 2 Cents: Close Encounter on Military Base -- Caterpillar From Hell Sends Teen to ER -- They Were Looking For Something


Close Encounter on Military Base

At Camp San Luis Obispo, a military base, on 10/15/2002 at 03:35 I was awoke by a small non-human giving me what seemed like a medical exam. First I felt hard tapping on my legs and as the being approached my face I was fully awakened to one being on my right doing the exam and another at the foot of my bed watching.

As I assessed what was happening I tried to scream but had no voice. At that moment the figure at the base of my bed that was approximately 3 and a half feet tall with a hood and helmet like face cover with no seems or color to his uniform began to fade and become translucent then disappeared.

I believe I was either being returned from an abduction or about to be abducted when I awoke. I gained control of my voice after the being disappeared.

I told my roommate, who shared the dorm room, and he believed me and we walked around my dorm room waving our arms around expecting to hit the being while it was invisible. We never found the being. But my roommate saw a being in the room a different night, but I was not in our dorm for that event.

I never believed in extraterrestrials until I saw the beings my self. - NUFORC

Alien 'Probing'

Ely, MN - 1978-07-18 22:00: I was camping by myself on Mile Island. I was going to portage around the BWCA by Fall Lake / Newton Lake / Pipestone Falls all the way to Jackfish Bay. I decided to stay the night on Mile Island / Fall Lake due to the portage being sorta hard by yourself and it was approaching night when I got there in my canoe. Once I got to the island and started sleeping I woke up around midnight and heard something coming over. I grabbed my rifle just in case it was a wild bear. I got up and then suddenly I was frozen and couldn't move. I saw some alien figures coming from the shrubs. They started rectal probing me, and I could not stop them when I tried to...they brought me underwater w/o me drowning and let me lay under there while they started doing other stuff on me. I was really scared and I didn't know if I'd ever see my girlfriend and my dog again. But then they stopped and it was all good. - MUFON

Caterpillar From Hell Sends Teen to ER

LAND O’ LAKES (CBS News/CBS Local)- A teen in Land O’Lakes, Florida, experienced what his mom said was “the worst pain he ever felt” after coming in contact with a venomous caterpillar. Fifteen-year-old Logan Pergola was doing volunteer landscaping work with his family on Saturday.

His mom, Andrea Pergola, said Logan was picking up tree branches when his arm brushed up against the caterpillar. It wasn’t the kind of harmless little bug that kids find on playgrounds; it was a southern flannel moth caterpillar, and it was dangerous.

“He instantly felt a sharp, stinging pain and his arm went numb. Within 5 minutes he was dizzy, had lost color, was complaining of the worst pain he had ever felt & his eyes weren’t super focused,” Pergola wrote about her son on Facebook. “We tried to wash it off and I applied some garlic (it pulls venom out usually with bug stings).”

Pergola said her son’s condition kept getting worse and her “mom instinct” told her to get him to the emergency room. She said once they arrived at a hospital in Zephyrhills, Logan needed a wheelchair. Read more at Venomous Caterpillar Sends Florida Teen To Emergency Room

They Were Looking For Something

“I have had between 8 and 21 UFOs around my house since August of 2017. There are two different colored lights: white, blue, red and green. Then the other is orange, red and green. Every other night, we can watch them in the woods about 7feet off the ground with a spot light shining at the ground like they are looking for something. They also are moving but in a weird way. But when they are high in the sky, you can actually see them change shape and when they move you can see a tail like from the back.” - Luna Belle111
