Strange Coincidence: This weekend, as I was driving to the barn, I saw a cloud coming from the South-West that eerily looked like a nuclear explosion mushroom cloud. I could not stop and take a picture, but it left me with a very uncomfortable feeling. And then last night, Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show published the following picture and accompanying comments:
“Last night as my family was returning from dining out near the beginning of twilight, I saw a gigantic cloud stretching endlessly upward and spreading out. It looked just like a mushroom cloud, the kind you would see following a nuclear explosion. Was this an ominous sign, or was this simply a case of personal projection of where my mind is presently at? I may never really know the answer for certain, however, this moment in time is reflective of where I believe the world is at in the present moment..”

I have been reading about black helicopters sightings in the US, but I did not except to see them appear in our skies in my neck of the woods here in Central Quebec. I have sighted one on Friday, probably a Griffon as pictured, and another one yesterday, Sunday August 23; someone told me they also sighted them on Saturday. Very unusual in our parts, and we’re are bout 50 miles as birds fly from the closest CFB at Valcartier.
Running Out Of Ammo
Over the weekend, I went shopping for some .22 caliber ammunition and I was shocked to be confronted by empty shelves at our local Canadian Tire. The attendant told me that Canadian retailers are having problems resupplying, especially for small caliber such as the .22, because of high demand from the US Army which gobbles up American ammunition manufacturers’ production – and the Canadian market is just a side-market for them.
I then went to a nearby sporting goods store, called Latullipe, which had ample supply, but the attendant there told me that this was only because they were lucky to have recently procured a fresh batch. According to this gentleman, the shortages in Canada are not due to US Army orders, but to American citizens stockpiling ammo in prevision of new restrictive regulations.
Both explanations may be right. In any event, that’s a lot of unusual things over just three days – and that’s not even counting the unusual high altitude jet formations I have seen over the weekend.
