It's been the coolest first week of May we can remember in Savannah- at least for a long time. That means that the Gribble House has been nice and cool for investigations and we've had some hot activity to go along with it. Here's what's been happening-
Ted was the lead investigator on Sunday night with a family of three. All of them were new to the paranormal but were really excited for the night. That changed after the initial walk through, though. The father decided that it was for the best if he stayed up front in the Safe Room while the mom and daughter went through with the investigation.
The mother and daughter ended up having some really interesting conversations through the Spirit Box while speaking in Hindi. What was really interesting was the fact that whenever they would ask questions in Hindi the replies they got would be in English! They asked in Hindi "Who is here" and they heard "Louis" come through.
There were a few unsettling moments that night, especially when they heard the phrase "Get out... just run" come through. When they asked "Why do you want us out" they heard again "Get out". A little while later in the Residual Area they heard the words "Little kid" come through in the voice of a child. But the most unsettling perhaps was when they heard the word "Burnt" come through twice in a row followed by "Nurse".
Wednesday night had Ted again as the lead investigator. It was a really interesting night of activity for all six of the people who investigated with him.
While the investigators were in the Slave Quarters they had a really strange moment because they heard a lot of voices coming from the front part of the building behind the curtain. Ted went over there to see what might be happening and asked "Who is making those noises"? They heard "Tom" come through. "How old are you" they asked and "Forty nine" was the reply. Finally, after they heard "Hide" come through, they asked "What are you hiding from" and "Hell" was the reply.
There seemed to be a lot of EMF activity happening in the building that night between the K-II Meter and the Raggedy Ann doll. A lot of that activity happened at the Stage Area. The investigators asked "Give us a sign you are here" and the Raggedy Ann Doll started to flash. She continued to flash throughout the time they were in that hot spot.
The next investigation of the week was with Kaitlyn on Thursday night with a pair of investigators. What struck Kaitlyn as strange though was the feeling of the building before the investigation every began. She was walking to the front of the building from the equipment room with the cart of equipment when she heard what sounded like the video clip unpausing itself and playing for a moment and them pausing again before starting to play again and then pause. It was so loud she could hear it echo through the building. Very strange...
The lady investigating that night was feeling a bit nervous about being in the building and so she decided that she was going to keep the light on her phone on throughout the investigation. While they were in the Stage Area they heard "Light" come through the Spirit Box and she apologized but insisted that she was going to keep the light on. They also heard the names Emmett and Hope come through while there.
The super creepy vibe of the building continued as the night went on, especially in the Residual Area. One of the investigators not only smelled what she thought was a rancid, rotten smell, but also what smelled like rancid breath right under her nose. Around that time they heard a deep and creepy voice say "Run" through the Spirit Box.
Kelley led the last second to last investigation of the week on Friday night with a pair of gentlemen who were experience investigators and were very excited to get started. On this evening it seemed like the EMF activity was off the chart, with more than usual EMF action happening all over the building. The Raggedy Ann doll went along to every hot spot and lit up like crazy all over the place. Female voices were coming from all angles around the building.
Right of the bat at the Stage Area, one of the spirits called out Paul for being a jerk. They heard "Stop" and "Enough" come through and when they asked "Is someone here being a jerk" the reply they heard was "Paul". This was followed by the Ovilus lighting up several times with the word Door. When they asked if there was something they need to know about the door they heard "It's unlocked for sure".
There were some strange motion action that happened this night, both that the investigators saw in action and some that they did not. The REM Pod they placed behind the curtain in the Slave Quarters went off on demand. However, Kelley had set up a chair in the Slave Quarters that moved on its own once she left the room...
Kelley was the lead investigator for the last night of this week- Saturday. The main theme of this night was the creepy whispering that kept coming through the Spirit Box throughout the entire evening. In addition to that the Ghost Meter Pros were on cue, sending out activity almost every time an investigator asked politely.
There were so many names that came through the Spirit Box that night. They heard Mitch, Paul, Steve, George, Heather, Carolyn, Wanda, Deanna, Dina, Anne, Annie, Phillip, Henry, and Hunter. They also heard a few strange and repeated phrases come through the Spirit Box. When they asked "Are there kids in here" at first they heard a whispered "Shut up". They asked again and this time they heard "Three black children" come through three times in a row.
There were also a few funny moments in the building that night. The chimney in the Slave Quarters was going chirping away and they heard "Hey there, birdie" come through the Spirit Box.
A great week. If you have anything to share please do so and tag us with the @gribblehouse or the #gribblehouse!
