OK, I'm not crazy. Thank you for reassuring my sanity Pokey Oats.
Let me tell you what happened to me last night.
(I arrived in Dallas from Wales Thursday of last week. My location says Wales, UK but I need to update it. I apologize.)
About 12:00am last night (this July 1st morning) I was making a sandwich in my kitchen and our electricity in the house simply failed.
Complete blackout in the house. A bundle of inconvenience. I had my Ipod on at the time so I used that as a sort of 'make-shift lantern'. I managed
to navigate upstairs and grab my camping lantern that provided substantially more light. I grabbed a couple of other battery powered lights to set up
around the house so I can have some sort of visual clarity without the use of my main lantern. My neighbor gives me a call on my cellphone telling me
their flashlight is entirely too dim to be of any use. I grab a couple of lanterns and make my way across the street. This is when everything seems to
turn to the realm of 'remarkable'...

Pokey Oats, this is the absolute FIRST
thing I noticed. Similar to how stadium lights from a distance illuminates the sky in a surreal way.
Only it seemed as if the light that refracted off the clouds (this is my best description) seemed to resemble a thin metallic wrap with a red tint.
Keep in mind this the best way I can describe the atmospheric appearance, I'm not claiming (at least yet) that something was 'flying' or
'floating' in the sky.
I spent more than a minute just observing this seemingly atmospheric anomaly until I realized that I needed to bring the battery powered lights to my
neighbor. As I hand them to her, I comment on the state of the sky. She takes a few steps outside, glances up and tells me 'I think we both need to
go inside just in case something happens'.
Now starts the nonsensical panic part. I walk (pseudo-jog) to my house, and for some reason that can be credited to sheer paranoia (Thank you
GhostRaven) I grab a knife, a bottle of water, throw it in my car and take a ride up the street.
Even though the sky was strangely illuminated, it seemed pitch black. It's not just my street, its the entire area, nothing is on. No street lights,
fast-food places...all dark.
And then, boom, I see lights 'dripping down' from the sky.
Now, I don't know what this was or whether it was related or not, however I do know that lights seemed to 'drip' from the sky. This was around
1:00am. I'm not sure if you remember but there was a post on ATS with video of a main light source in the sky 'dripping down' smaller incarnates of
itself. This was exactly
what it looked like, only there was no 'main light source'. I'll try to find a video of the thing.
Now what do you when you're faced with two events that completely shift your paradigm on your environment? I'm not sure what you would have done but
I drove to the nearest Wal-Mart and sat in the parking lot. I'm not sure why, it just happened. I think subconsciously I was thinking 'OK, if
happen I can easily just break into Wal-Mart, fill up my car with whatever I need and drive off to safety.
Don't worry Pokey Oats. You were not alone last night, If I didn't see what you saw, then what I witnessed was pretty damn close. I'm located in
collin county, about a 30 minute drive from downtown Dallas.
