My wife and I had picked up a mutual friend this evening around 11:00pm and were headed back to our house when  something strange happened.

Recently a lot of road/electrical work is being down on the road that leads out to our house and maybe that can help explain this?

Anyway on the way back to our house, my wife was talking to our friend in the backseat when him and I noticed something - smoke-like, furry, crawling quickly towards my oncoming vehicle.

It moved like smoke or oil, dripping and rolling on the road, towards the vehicle.

I screamed out "Oh, ****!" as I at first I thought I was about to his 100 mice feeding, until I realized it was moving towards us.

Our friend hollered back "What the hell is that!?"

My wife quickly turned to watch the.. thing.. go under our car.

What on earth was it?

I'm going to make hate to you.

It moved like smoke or oil? Or smoke and oil? Dripping and rolling on the road.
Then add you also thought it was furry and crawling and 100 mice feeding?
------------
Interesting description, idk
Heat rising off the road? Low patches of fog? Swarm of insects? All three?

Did you turn around and pursue it to try to get a better look? Idk about you, but if I lived on that road I'd have been quite interested in figuring it out.

We turned around immediately to look for it and nothing!
It just vanished..

It moved like or rolling smoke OR oil!

At first glance, yes, it did appear perhaps a hundred mice were feeding on something but then as it undulated towards the car I took a closer look and it looked just like fur... no head, no eyes, no feet, no tail!

It was just so creepy.

I'm going to make hate to you.

You sure it wasn't just a plastic bag blowing down the road?

The title confused me like hell, so I had to check it out. I still can't believe what I just read. That sighting sounds incredible, definitely gonna follow this thread! :w00t:

  • you want to know the answer? Hell, I'm still working on the question!

Posted 08 July 2013 - 01:07 AM

It was 11pm.  What were the weather conditions?  What was the condition of your headlights?   You say it "moved like smoke or oil", how so?  Did it, like smoke, seem to come apart?  Approximately how long and wide, would guesstimate it was?

The way it moved was.. well.. It seemed to roll like smoke from a building or oil down a slope. Does that sort of make sense?
It was about the size of a breadbox.

My headlights were replaced last year and are kept relatively clean, the weather conditions were a little stormy, a storm was rolling in which hit today around 230pm and was quite heavy!

After doing more research and talking to others, it came up, that possibly this was a Cucui (El Cucuy) which has been described as a shadow or smoke-like "monster" but is usually only in connection with children and as I'm 26 - I immediately wrote it off.

I'm going to make hate to you.

Perhaps it was just some fog setting in?

Sounds like the defence mechanism from Lost... Just a little bit smaller.

Fog doesn't look like that around here, AliveInDeath7.

Rafterman, I'm 26 - I'm pretty sure I can identify a plastic bag in the wind.
