Strange Activity at an old South Main school: Phase III

It was to be a night much like any other at an old Bowling Green, Ohio school…..or was it?  The Fringe Paranormal team returned to this active location on what was suspected to be a significant date based on previously obtained evidence.  What would destiny dictate on this fateful evening?  Did the Fringe team find any evidence to corroborate claims of paranormal activity?

Investigation Date: July 15, 2010

Investigation Duration: 9pm-1:00am

Tonight’s investigation would prove to be very trying for the Fringe team.  Temperatures during the daylight hours had reached into the 90s and the humidity was quite high.  When the Fringe team arrived on location we discovered that the cooling system for the building had been shut down for the evening. We set up base HQ in one room that had an individual air conditioning unit. This gave the team much needed relief during its breaks between investigation rotations.  The investigation proceeded much like any other with the Fringe Paranormal team splitting up into two units. EVP recordings were taken along with base temperature and other readings.

The team specifically arranged this investigation for July 15th based upon evidence obtained during a previous visit to the location. Hopes were high that perhaps the information obtained from an EVP during that visit was a portent of an interesting evening. .  The evening went smoothly with no glitches other than the extreme heat and humidity inside the building. Unfortunately the team experienced no activity of any significance. A review of audio and video revealed nothing of note.  At 1:00 am the team ended their investigation for the evening.  Based upon lack of activity this investigation will rate a “0” on the Collins Paranormal Index



Based on the evidence obtained during previous investigations, the team was left to wonder if perhaps environmental conditions played a part in this night’s lack of  activity.  The chart below compares all three investigations and the conditions at the time.

 PHASE 1 Phase II Phase III
 Date   July 24, 2009   November 28,2009   July 15, 2010
 Avg. Temperature  73°f  38.6° f  81°f
 Dew Point  58°  20.6°  68°
 Avg. Humidity  73%  51%  63%
 Precipitation  .01 in  0.0 in  0.0 in
 Barometric Pressure  29.89 in  29.10 in  29.97 in
 Wind  2 mph WSW  1.3 mph SW  8 mph SSW
 Solar X-rays  normal  normal  active
 Geomagnetic Field  quiet  quiet  storm
 Moon  Waxing crescent  8% full  Waxing gibbous  83% full  Waxing crescent
 CPI Index  CPI 5  CPI 5  CPI 0

Looking at the chart above yields some insight into the conditions during the  three investigation phases. Phase 1 and Phase 2 investigations produced level 5 CPI activity. Phase 3 produced a CPI 0.

Precipitation, Barometric pressure, and wind all seem to play no significant role in any paranormal activity at this location.  A low ambient temperature and a low dew point also seem to have had no effect. Analysis of the chart for this location also suggests that there is no correlation between moon phases and anomalous activity.  The difference in solar x-rays and the geomagnetic field may or may not be of any significance. Going back to temperature, one can see that the average temperature was 8° higher on the non-active Phase 3 as opposed to the active Phase 1 and Phase 2.  The dew point for non-active Phase 3 registered higher than previous active Phases.



Based upon evidence previously obtained at this location we must question why there was no activity during Phase 3.  We posit that higher temperatures throughout the day and a high dew point may have

quelled any activity during this investigation.  While humidity in and of itself does not seem to be a significant factor, we wonder if this combined with the temperature and dew point played a role in the lack of activity. There is a theory that Solar X-rays, Geomagnetic fields and moon phases play a positive role in the activity at a location. Perhaps the opposite holds true and the active solar X-rays and storm in the geomagnetic field actually put a damper on activity. We will keep this location on our watch list as it has proven to be a significant source of possible paranormal activity.
