Great thread, OP. It's amusing to see the lengths some will go to in order to explain things like this. These explanations are always limited by the extent of our current knowledge. In other words, if we haven't discovered anti-gravity propulsion yet, for example, then anything displaying anti-gravity properties can only be explained by making unbelievable stretches of logic and keeping the explanation within our current level of knowledge. If we haven't discovered it, it doesn't exist, is basically what these "logical explanations" mean. As far as this incident is concerned, car chase, a crash and search by helicopter? Are they kidding? That is desperate. Until we are ready to suspend our prejudices against the unknown -- and are able to admit there is probably an infinite number of things we do not understand -- we will continue to hear "explanations" that are even more incredible and purely ridiculous than the most far-fetched theory.
I spoke with my stepdad today and he works for Entergy. He says that there was no powerstation that had issues, he says they do not know the cause of the outage. A crew was called into work to address the issue, by the time they got on the road, the lights came back on. They're still looking into the problem as far as he knows.

This doesn't really have much to do with this thread necessarily, but it is unusual activity for this area.
We live in Eastern KY and the nearest military base is Ft. Campbell, 291 miles from here. Lately (over the past few months) there have been quite a few military helicopters flying around this area. A few weeks ago I saw six Chinooks, I have seen Black Hawks and the other day when we were in the garden putting out some plants an unmarked black Apache flew over, quite low. It circled around, banked hard to the left and then flew over the tree line and was gone.
There is a National Guard Base near by but they are Engineers.edit on 21-5-2012 by wevebeenassimilated because: added detail

It sounds to me like you where caught in an electrical storm. They dont just happen when it rains. If your hair stands up it means you are in danger of being struck by lightening...
That might explain the flashes. Thunder can make real funky noises too... The copters may have been checking for damage to the lines of something....
