I took the behind the scenes tour which brought us to the basement of the winchester mansion last march, 2006. I was with a group of 10 or so people. In the room, where the coal bin was, I was in the back of the group standing and just listening to the tour guide. I had my backpack on and my hands on my hips. During the talk, I felt like two ice cold fingers tapping me on the arm and what felt like nudging on my backpack. Strong, yet polite and assertive nudging on my backpack, almost to the point of moving me. It would be like someone was a little annoyed with me that I was in the way, and wanted me to move. I looked back and saw nothing. I remember rubbing my arm where the tapping was to warm the area up and then I stood back in the same position again. Well, it happened again to me, not quite in the same place, but even stronger. Immediately, I thought that this had to be something of a spirit or so. I moved to another spot.
After the tour was done, I told the tour guide about my experience. She told me that there were other guides that experienced what looked like an unclear/grayish/smokish apparition (might not be the right word) or sighting of a gentleman wearing work clothes in the same area. This is the truth and I would appreciate it if others would come forward with their experiences. Thanks.
