So I pull up into my driveway, turn the engine off and get out. Normally the stereo will automatically shut off once I open the door, but this time it
doesn’t. It stays on after the engine has been turned off, the key removed and the door opened. So I shut my door, and it’s still on. It’s not
until I re-open my door that it finally shuts off. By itself this incident wouldn’t be anything of significance but more things start going haywire.
My son and I walk inside, put our stuff down and as usual, he runs to the TV to watch cartoons. All of the sudden, the television begins making this
high pitch piercing sound and the picture goes fuzzy. With the extent of my electrical knowledge, I beat on the side of the TV in an attempt to make
it stop, but to no avail. The sound and poor picture last for about ten minutes before finally dying out and returning to normal.
Moments later, as I’m rummaging through the refrigerator pulling things together for dinner it begins to make this horrid screeching sound. It
doesn’t stop until I turn both the refrigerator and freezer side control knobs all the off.
By now, I’m really beginning to wonder just what the hell is going on. Why are all the electronics going nuts? Solar Flares? Maybe, but I’ve been
watching the Suns activates and nothing seems more extreme than normal. Chinese Drywall? Possibly but that wouldn’t explain my truck radio.
Poltergeist? I hope not! Maybe it’s all just a coincidence. And as I’m running through my mind all the various reasons why these things are doing
what they are doing my microwave begins turning on and off. I kid you not. Standing there at my stove cooking dinner, my microwave turns on, runs for
one second, and turns off. It does this about four times before I finally just unplug it.
I’m becoming genuinely concerned. Something strange is going on. Within a few minutes my wife and daughter arrive home. I begin telling her about
all the things that have happened and she looks somewhat confused. She proceeds to tell me that her (brand new) car did the exact same thing when she
got to work that day and that her iPhone has been acting up all day long. At this point I remember talking to my friend in California earlier who made
mention that his iPhone was acting up as well.
So I’m curious, has anyone else been experiencing strange electrical malfunctions or disturbances. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to
what could be causing all of this? Am I just going crazy?
