I slacked off on my Wednesday post. I had a tough week at work, and even took tomorrow off to recover. At least I had a couple of awesome reblogs for everyone.
I snapped this photo while camping last weekend. I sat under the awning and watched the lake for about an hour. There wasn't a boat around anywhere. When this happened, I snapped a quick photo.
So, I ask you, what caused that swirl in the middle of the lake? It stayed like that for about twenty minutes. Everyone seemed to have fun with my conspiracy theory about my camping neighbor. Let's hear your theories.
Waterborne monsters are scary, because humans are so helpless in the water. In fact, a big part of monsters involves isolation and difficult environments. Authors have to sell the sizzle and not the steak here. We rarely see an author place a scary monster in a crowd during broad daylight. That's because we are at our best under those circumstances. Most monsters appear miles from help, where there isn't a cellular signal, and mostly at night.
So here we have a bizarre swirl on the surface of Brownlee Reservoir. Is it jet wash from a cloaked spaceship? Maybe it's caused by something underneath the water. Let me hear it. Maybe it's the mothership come to retrieve my erie camping neighbor.
