My wife and I had just opened our camper that was parked on our driveway in the back, when the tornado sirens went off on May 31st in Minneapolis. We had the cover of this full size camper off and laying on the lawn. We quickly ran in too see the forecast on the local channel. We were expecting tornados and deadly winds, as the storm approached Minneapolis according to the weather station.
My wife and I quickly jumped in to action; I ran out and raised the ladder. I quickly grabbed the protective cover for the camper and dragged it to the side of the camper. Spending much time in the BWCA and wilderness area of the Midwest, I took a moment and stepped in the alley to view the darkening sky. Wow, we had a storm brewing that we have not had for a long time. The static electricity was so great that the hairs were standing up on my arms. At this time I knew we were in for a light show!
My wife quickly ran in to check on her mother (her dear husband was in the hospital and she was really worried about her being alone). I ran up the ladder and started dragging the camper cover up the side, when the air got really still... The sky turned black and I could see the approaching storm clouds velocity growing and turning dark as night. All of the sudden the ladder fell to the ground and I turned, there was little or no wind. I was stranded as the black clouds approached closer and closer, I started calling for my wife who was on the phone trying to get in touch with her mom in the house.
She could not complete the call; the stereo turned up to max volume... And all of her effort to turn down the stereo was fruitless... Because of the volume of the stereo she could not hear me calling for her help as the dark clouds approached while I was stranded 12ft in the air.
Finally as the storm got closer, she came running out to tell me of her terrifying experience with the stereo and noticed me stranded on the camper. Though I have been in many scary predicaments both in my everyday life and the investigations we have conducted, this particular event made me feel very vulnerable and helpless to the powers that be.
My questions would be; Does the static electricity create and intensifies paranormal activities that exist with a powerful storm? Does the fear and vulnerability that people feel during a great storm make them sensitive to paranormal activity? We are a ghost hunting team; could an entity follow us home from a previous investigation? Could it draw strength from a storm? Though it could be explained away easily due to the storm, the wind was not enough to hinder me pulling a large cloth cover up but it was strong enough to topple a metal ladder?
