Oakville Blobs


Quote:On August 7, 1994, in Oakville, Washington at 3:00 AM, rain began to fall, blanketing a 20 square mile area. Though rain is common in the area, residents began to note that the rain was not water but a strange, gelatinous substance they had never seen before. Over a period of three weeks, the rain would fall a total of six times.

By the afternoon that day, David, Dotty, and various other residents had become mysteriously and violently ill. They described having difficulty breathing, extreme vertigo, blurred vision, and an increasing sense of nausea. Beverly Roberts, another resident of the area, said that everyone in town contracted a flu-like illness that lasted two to three months. Additionally, several cats and dogs that came into contact with the substance fell ill and died. An hour after first noticing her symptoms, Dotty was found sprawled on her bathroom floor, conscious but very weak.

A lab technician examined the substance and found that it contained human white blood cells but couldn't identify what it was or how it came from the sky. The sample was quickly sent to the Washington State Department of Health for further study. Mike McDowell, a microbiologist at the department, noted that the substance was teeming with two species of bacteria, one of which lives in the human digestive system.

Nearly a year after Dotty fell ill, she mailed a sample of the substance she had stored in her freezer to AmTest Laboratories, a private research lab. There, while analyzing the sample, Tim Davis, another microbiologist, believed he saw an eukaryotic cell; complex, nucleus-containing cells that are present in most living creatures. This meant that the substance is or had been alive.

prior to the rain, many Oakville residents noticed a significant - almost daily - amount of slow-moving military aircraft in the skies above their town. Some believe Oakville was the site of a military experiment, designed to test a new biological weapon or to test the possible damage a biological attack on US soil could do.

No samples of the substance exist today.

I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971

Holy crap! That's where the abandoned Gold Placer Mine is that I'm going to investigate in the next few weeks.
