My ex-wife of 17 years and I had
returned from a party in Clearwater and had gotten home fairly
late, 1:00 AM or so. About day lite, probably around 6:30 - 7:00,
the dogs were going crazy barking - it woke us up. We often had
coyotes around and they barked at them. However this was more, I
remember us yelling at them to "shut-up" - I remember
not wanting to get up - (I wish I had now). Anyway we got up
maybe around 8 - 9:00, had something to eat and went to feed the
cattle. I usually walked down past a barn and fed some animals,
and continued on to this bridge where I would meet up with Nancy
who had gone a different route to feed chickens, etc. I got to
the bridge a bit ahead of her and I looked at the creek and there
was this circle cut in the ice. Like I said I lived there for 35
years and probably looked at this pond, swimming hole area of our
creek, thousands of times maybe, and never had I seen anything
like this. I called to Nancy we looked at it closer, I realized
this was no "natural" event. We thought we should get
others to see this, so we drove around the neighbour-hood and got
a number of people to come over. No-one had ever seen anything
like this. This is how I would describe it:
- It looked as if a 9 red hot
cookie cutter were placed on the ice.
- Just cut thru the ice, and the center
not taken out.
- It was exactly 9 in diameter
- The ice was approximately 1/2"
thick and I threw a large rock on it and it didnt go thru.
- The cut itself was maybe only
- The edge of the cut was perfectly
smooth, as a record for example and the same all around the
circle, right thru a 1/2" of ice. Its hard to explain this
in a letter and even the pictures dont really show it so
well - but we all agreed this was not a "normal" event.
- This circle on the ice was only maybe
30-40 feet from where I had seen this UFO disc years earlier
("in a dream")
- The creeks there get sort of a rust
sediment on them in the winter, an orangish color. On the bottom
of the creek bed there was an exact circle the same as through
the ice. The orange color had been "blasted" away and
the pattern of the circle was on the bottom of the creek
- A couple of young men who were there
looking at this said, the evening before they had been coming
home from cutting fence posts and seen a "satellite"
going along the mountain. This was still in daylite. Ive
never seen a satellite in the daytime.
