Hi. I'm sure you are aware that I've never posted here before, but I have been reading this forum for a couple of months now. I've always been a
big believer of life on other planets, and the government keeping secrets about it. I have had a strange experience yesterday and I’d like to get
your opinions on it, to see if I’m just being paranoid or what. But first, let me tell you what happened.
Yesterday started off as strange. Nothing major, but there was an odd silence around my house. Usually there are animals and birds around making
noise and whatnot, but yesterday I didn’t see a single animal or bird all day. I thought nothing of it at the time, but it is the first strange
thing to happen.
I should explain why silence is strange. I live in a house on farmland with my family. The farm is not mine, my father is the farmer, I run a
general store in town, but we built our house next to my parent’s house because we couldn’t really afford our own land at the time. Anyway,
that’s where I live with my wife and 2 daughters. The farm is about 30 minutes drive from the nearest town, so as you can imagine, there are
usually a lot of animals and birds and things running around. That’s why the silence was strange.
As I said, I didn’t think anything of it at the time, but last night the dog woke me up barking like crazy for some reason. I was about to go yell
at him when he suddenly went quiet on his own. So I decided to just go back to sleep, he sometimes barks at nothing and it wasn’t really anything
new. Anyway, just as I was drifting back to sleep, I was reawakened by this weird high pitched whining noise. It was the strangest thing I’ve ever
heard, and it sounded like it came from just outside the house. It was repeated again and I decided to go take a look, I couldn’t think of anything
that would make a noise like that.
Anyway, I walked downstairs to the entryway and just as I was about to flick the lightswitch, I noticed the doorknob move. I heard it first, then saw
it twitch. Then I heard some kind of scratching on the door. I was panicking, I thought it was a burglar or something, though now in hindsight I
don’t know why somebody would drive all the way out here to burgle our house. I turned on the light and made a lot of noise, hoping to scare off
the burglar. I had once seen a TV show that said this is the best course of action, because the burglar will get scared of being caught and try to
flee rather than deal with a house that is aware of him, especially since for all he knew, I was a farmer and had no problem defending my home with a
Anyway, I heard footsteps running off the porch and into the field, and I opened the door to look out after they had faded. I couldn’t see anything
naturally, and I was about to close the door when I heard the high pitched whining noise repeated from out in the field. I started to get a little
spooked, because it was such a strange noise. Anyway, I locked up the door and checked everything else was locked, then went up to bed. I couldn’t
sleep though, my heart was racing and I was afraid of hearing the noise again. My wife was equally as spooked and the kids came to sleep with us
after the whining noise had woken them up.
This morning I found my dog dead inside his kennel. I don’t know how he died, there wasn’t a mark on him and he was in perfect health according
to the vet 3 weeks ago, but I remember now how he was barking and suddenly went quiet last night.
I also discovered a strange long scratch mark on my door. I can only assume it was the scratching noise I had heard last night. The thing is, the
same mark was on the door to my parent’s house. They hadn’t heard anything, they have hearing problems and could sleep through anything, but the
door scratch was strange. I checked the field where I had heard the footsteps the night before heading towards, and I noticed strange tracks in the
dirt. I don’t know what they are, but they looked like nothing I’d seen before, either person or animal.
Anyway, I went in to town to report the night’s events to the local police, and they said they would look into it in case it was some burglars or
something that had been troubling farms. However, when I got home, throughout the day I noticed that a strange number of cars came along the dirt
road that goes by our house. I counted 23 cars, all black, drive past in both directions along the road out front of our driveway. It is extremely
odd since we are lucky to see 1 car a day usually.
Now I am starting to feel a little freaked out, I know I can be paranoid at times and others know it as well, but the whole event has my entire family
freaked out, and I am concerned that something is going on. You guys deal with this sort of thing on a regular basis, so that’s why I’m posting
this here. I want to know if I’m just being paranoid or if there is something to really be concerned about. I doubt I will sleep again tonight, my
mind is racing and I know I’ll be straining my ears to hear another strange noise.
So what do you guys think, I worry about my family and I hope it’s all just in my head, but what if there is something happening here. If you have
any thoughts or experiences that could put my mind at ease I would really like to hear them.
