Who ya gonna call? (APAD)

The 244th picture in "A Picture A Day" series.

Went ghost hunting at a new place last night! I found this cryptic drawing on one of the windows. I wonder what it is? Hmmmmmmmm. I'm guessing it was drawn by a teenage ghost.

Anyway, we were planning on going back to house 107, but a ghost hunting emergency came up. How could we pass that up? So, instead we hunted an old hardware store with two apartments on top. Apparently, the women who live there have been experiencing some pretty scary stuff: TV's and lamps turning on and off with no one touching them, banging, something whispering "Get out," and yada yada yada. One of the women is so scared of the place that she refuses to sleep there. So, who better to call than us, right?

We began the hunt around 7pm. We toured the place, took pictures, set up audio and video, and took EMF readings. EMF stands for Electro Magnetic Field. EMF readings are typically really high around electrical stuff, which means that if you're standing by something with a high EMF you're probably gonna feel creepy and weird. When all the lights were on in the basement of this place there were high EMF spikes, which is why it felt so spooky to be down there ... like something was watching you. But, when everything was turned off the readings went away and so did the feeling. Interesting, huh? So, once we have a base EMF reading and know where the high EMF's are going to be, if it spikes during the hunt either we have activity or know that we're standing by something that emitted high EMF's earlier.

Unfortunately, we didn't get jack on this trip. Well, I shouldn't say that because I still have audio to review and the others have audio and video. So, maybe we will have something. The hunt was a total disappointment, though, because at 12am just when we were really getting started, the owner of the place decides to invite half a million people over for a kegger. Ummmmmmmm. Ok. Needless to say, that pretty much ruined our night of ghostages. Ya can't hunt with a ton of people. And, ya can't hunt with douche bags. It's a rule in the ghost hunters handbook.

And there ya have it. Another ghost hunt bites the dust.
