the mysterious shed
This is the mysterious shed, located just down the road from me. I don't know if you can see it but someone has shoveled a narrow path through the snow. The shed is about the size of a large dog house (like for a St. Bernard or Newfie) or a small chicken coop. Local rumor has it the land belongs to CMP (Central Maine Power). Years ago my son checked it out and found a deep pit or tunnel with some sort of piping or machinery – his memory is vague now – and a single light.
A couple of weeks ago same son was walking outside at night and saw a dim light. He walked toward it, down the road in the direction of the little shed. He saw two people standing there, one with a flashlight and the other with a headlamp. They were whispering. Then my son’s phone made a noise, or vibrated and they quit talking and left fast. My son headed back toward our house.
There is a house fairly close by, but my son knows them and they claim to know nothing of the shed.
