My husband Tim (then boyfriend), and I were living in
Colorado at the time of this particular experience. We
lived in an apartment building on the third floor, the top
floor. It was wintertime and fairly cold outside, but not
snowing. Tim woke me up in the early morning around 2:30-
3:00 am to an unforgetable sound.
It sounded like there were hundreds of dogs in our living
room, howling and carrying on. It was an eerie howling
sound, not like a regular dog would make. It chilled us
to our bones, to this day I won't talk about it because it
scared me so.
The "howling" carried on for what seemed
like to us half an hour but in actuality it was but a
minute or two. When it stopped Tim and I just laid there
terrified to move, after a few minutes, we got up to go
look in the living room.
There was nothing there, all the
doors were locked, the tv and stereo were off, it was just
dead silent. Another thing that made it so eerie was that
even though it was in the middle of the night, the sky
outside was "glowing" red, like just before sunrise, but a
deeper red. The glow was bright enough for us to get to
the living room without a light on. After checking out
the apartment we went back to bed, but not back to sleep.
We laid there the entire night debating what it could have
been. We couldn't think of anything to explain the noise
we heard. One thought that I had was that maybe the
battery in the smoke alarm was running low and that could
have caused the noise. Tim quickly dismissed that idea,
because he had just replaced the batteries in both smoke
alarms the week before.
After that night we always slept
with the bedroom door closed (as if that could keep
anything paranormal or supernatural out of our room), and
we have never heard it again, thank goodness.
