I just got involved in ''ghost hunting'' and I have equipment to look for spirits. Email me if you want to chat.

It was about 5 pm when I saw it! I was upstairs playing video games when I saw a mist. It was white the size of a person right in the corner of my eye. It floated up and disappeared into the ceiling. I think it was one of the people who lived here before we did.

On June 5, 1942, a large explosion on the assembly line at the Joliet Arsenal resulted in 48 dead or missing and was felt 100 miles away. During the Vietnam War, the Joliet Arsenal was renamed Joliet Army Ammunition Plant. The ''Elwood unit'' reopened in 1966 and produced artillery rounds, supplementary charge assemblies, and cluster bomb units. The ''Kankakee unit'' reopened in 1965 and manufactured TNT until 1976. I was working as an office worker at the other section of the plant (Kankakee unit) where they made the TNT. Each morning at 8 a. M. , I had to teletype to U. S. Government the amount of TNT produced the day before.
In the summer of 1972, as I was driving towards Joliet on Route 53 (old U. S. Route 66) just north of Wilmington, I saw a ''puff of white'' fly above the 4-lane highway directly across from the Joliet Arsenal (Elwood unit) to my right. I always felt it was one of the ghosts from that big explosion. There was no fog or puffy smoke or unusual weather when I saw that ''puff of white'' which was the size of a person. .
