 crop circles?!

Watching Discovery Channel where crop circles are the topic. Discussion covers known hoaxes, the inexplicable, scientific theory, etc. The very next day I see previously unnoticed areas within my upper field of barley laid over in a number of oddly shaped areas. Barley at that was about two feet high, yet to be cut.
Stranger still, none of the areas showed any entry point from the perimeter of the field where grain stood tall and unbent. Property fenced and gated. No previous foot traffic, loose livestock or frolicsome dogs. Any similar experiences? Just wondering.

what freaks me is that i see retired astronauts claiming while on the darkside of the moon they saw things. i mean the "right stuff" guys actually saying this!! they also say that they were
told by nasa to say nothing?

o' course on cold dark nights as we look up there sure are a lot of possible parking lots up there.

I don't know about your area but this time of year we have a phenomenon called 'wind devils'. They are basically VERY small weak tornadoes. Usually no more than about 10 feet across and barely capable of taking a cap off your head. When they occur in parking lots or open areas they are called 'dirt devils' because they become very visible because of all the dust and debris they pick up. They usually only last a few moments and then vanish.

It is very common to see them over fields and as the bottom of the funnel touches down or nearly does it makes fascinating patterns in crops like wheat or hay, they don't seem to have enough power to push over corn though.

As for Dwayne who got plucked out of his pickup on a back road by little grey skinned beings with big heads and bulging eyes, diddled and left naked in the Wal-Mart parking lot, that's another matter, probably related more to his spending the first part of the evening at the VFW than anything else.

Best of luck.
