Strange Things at Serpent Mound

leave a comment »

Ever since I read about The Great Serpent Mound in the Haunted Ohio books when I was a kid I’ve wanted to go. I didn’t have anything going on today so I decided to make the drive. I’ve heard a few stories about strange things that happen there but I didn’t expect anything would happen to me. I just wanted to see it.

But a strange thing happened to me.

I’ve had my iPhone for over a year. I’ve never had any problems with it. Today while I was walking around Serpent Mound taking pictures it suddenly turned itself off. When I tried to turn it back on it had the dead battery graphic. I know it wasn’t dead. I had it on the charger the whole way there. It was at 100%. After another try or two it restarted but was down to 40%. When I tried to take another picture it turned itself off again. I repeated this at least a dozen times. It would show the dead battery graphic, then startup on the next try, stay on for about 5 seconds, then turn off again.

I decided to put it back on the charger in my car just to see what would happen. After a few minutes of charging with it on, I unplugged it and took a picture of my steering wheel to make sure it wasn’t going to turn off again. It was working fine. So I went back out to take the pictures I wanted from the observation tower. Lo and behold, after taking pictures for another 5 minutes it went right back to turning itself off. I decided to go ahead and leave.

I put it back on the charger in my car and left. About 20 miles down the road is the abandon Belfast Elementary School. Its creepy looking so I decided to stop and take some pictures of it as well. My phone worked fine. Its worked fine the rest of the day. I expect it will continue to work fine.

I love a good ghost story and unexplained things. That’s only the second time something truly unexplained has happened to me (I once caught a voice say “you’re in the hole” while using my iPhones’ voice recorder in a cell at the Ohio State Reformatory).

Today was awesome. I was dumbfounded. Serpent Mound really is a strange, special place.
