"I Ain't Afraid of No Ghosts"- Ghostbusters

When I was put on the same path as PSICAN a few months back, I never would have thought there would be enough spooky happenings in Ontario to have the PSICAN team active with some members checking out reports of hauntings, most weekends.

There was alot going on this week, and I was fortunate to be given the oportunity to travel to a Post Secondary education facility in Toronto to investigate reports of hauntings in the building.

The night was not scarey, but we did get action on video and it was loud bangs that could not be explained and some really cool light shows. Like fireflies flying super fast and being caught on video with my night vision video recorder.

This ole investigation was not quite typical. We actually were at the location from 11:30PM to about 4:30AM. Now it is creapy enough walking through a deserted building at any time. Make it the witching hour and the imagination could really go squirrelly.
Thank goodness no one from our team was a screamer or a jump-in-fright-er.
We made light of the atmosphere and really tried hard to discount occurrances.
In the end we had one re-occuring noise that was really loud and it would happen in clusters.
We heard footsteps in the hall, a sound that was like someone was manically using a staple gun in a locked room, and we got some "fairy lights" zooming around a room.

I got to meet a lady from my area, who will share rides with me when it is appropriate, so that was great! Nice to know there is more than one ghost hunter in York Region.

I got to meet the student who had interviewed me for her term paper, and I got to work again with Chris, who was pretty much the leader. We were so decked out!
flashlights and bottled water, Tim Hortons coffee and timbits, pop corn, cookies, chocolate and egg salad sandwiches.
Chris thinks we need to open a PSICAN catoring service.

I might be able to put a clip of a video up.
It will be a while though cuz I have to get Alex to make it into a format so I can show a clip on here.
I haven't looked through my photos yet.

I can just see you guys walking around walking around darkened halls and laughing everytime a big bang! goes off :) lol the manic stapler man sounds interesting.
We were a little worried about all of you traveling and the weather. Happy to hear you had a great time and everything went well!
Cheers! Nancy

When reading this post, I simply turned on all the lights we do have in our winterhome. And checked every corner and every drawer and cupboard. Nothing to find but two sleeping Cats.

Must have been an exiting experience.

Sounds like an interesting night -- weird about the staple gun noise!

Hope you get to feeling better!
