more of interest...does anyone know of someone who experienced this...

  1. Labyrinth_13 responds: July 16th, 2009 at 9:23 am Does anyone remember the case of a mysterious rain of gelatinous goo that occurred in the town of Oakville in Washington State? Since Washington State is near Alaska, it crossed my mind that there may be some correlation between these two.
    Here is a brief blurb about it from Unsolved Mysteries:
    “In August of 1994, a bizarre sequence of events began to occur in the small town of Oakville, Washington. Gelatinous blobs of biological material began to rain down over an area of over 20 square miles during a storm. It would happen six times in 1994, and continue periodically thereafter. The latest was during the third week of June 1997.
    The fact that this was going on would not generally be known outside of Oakville until an episode of Unsolved Mysteries on Thursday, May 8, 1997, hosted by Robert Stack.
    It came from the skies to wreck havoc on the earth. It sounds like a bad science fiction movie, but for the little town in Washington there was nothing entertaining about the scourge that befell them in 1994. Six times it rained down from above, leaving dozens of local residents ill, and several pets and small animals dead.”
    It all happened in Oakville, Washington, population 665. Here in Oakville, clouds fill the skies daily, bringing rain some 275 days a year. So, when it began pouring on the morning of August 7, 1994, no one was particularly concerned - until they realized it wasn’t raining rain. It was raining tiny blobs of gelatinous goo. It came down in torrents, blanketing 20 square miles, and brought with it something of a plague.
    Maurice Gobeil (local resident): ‘I got sick, my wife got sick, my daughter got sick and everybody that lived here got sick.’
    Beverly Roberts (local resident): ” Everybody in the whole town came down with something like the flu, only it was a really hard flu that lasted from seven weeks to two or three months.”

It's The Blob III and the movie will probably star Jude Law in the role that Steve McQueen and Kevin Dillon had in the first Blob and the first remake respectively.

Frankly, I find this goo stuff scary. What is hair doing in it? How often does algae fall from the sky and make people sick? Spooky.......

This "blob" was genetically created in a petri dish for Sarah Palin to have to deal with as a present from the Democrats. Now that she left on her own accord, they are just kind of like "Oooops". Dont worry, in about three weeks the state will receive about 900 million dollars in taxpayer stimulus money creating jobs to fix it. Unfortunately, the people tasked those jobs wont be doing much more than those on unemployment. I guess we're all doomed.

Be interesting to find out what it is in Alaska...

Yikes I never heard about the Washington goo. And that is dang close to me... an hour or less. Guess because didn't have TV or internet then. I will talk to some people and see what they remember. Have one that just remodeled a multi generation owned house in Oakville. I have talked to people there who do believe the chem trail ideas.
