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.

    I came home (home alone) one night to our front door wide open and made our guy friends check in every nook and cranny for intruders.
