North Carolina Ice Storm January 2013
Last week Joe was in Wisconsin for work. yes, in january. I don't mind spending some time alone as I'm rather on the introverted side, however I don't care for being home alone at night. paranoia always sets in. go figure.
A few strange, sort of random, not so pleasant things happened while he was away.
-we received a voice-mail (not from our security provider, but the FBI?) the day of his departure regarding the need for updating ones home security system. we do have a security system, so that does make me feel a lot better than not having one... but still, why this voice-mail? why now? don't worry I know I can protect myself, locked and loaded. yes, i'm awesome.
-one of our lamps flickered off and on for no rhyme or reason that i could figure out. i went over and check the bulb, turned the bulb a little to take it out and the light came back on. so it isn't burnt out, okay it works. i walked away and the light went out again. walked back over to the lamp, touched the end table and it went on again. freaky... i unplugged it, putting it upstairs and replaced it with a different lamp. anddddddddddddddddd now i have a ghost in my house.
-on the second night alone around dinner time, i heard what sounded like a tapping noise on a window. i walked around turning on exterior house lights, peered out windows and found nothing. okay neighbors if that was a joke, not funny!
-my last day/night alone we were under a winter storm warning. of course not the white pretty snow... it snowed for about 30 minutes and then for the next 7 hours it was sleet and freezing rain. good thing i work from home on friday's. i planted myself inside, well, except for a quick lunch date with a dear friend and then later the next morning to capture a few images.
