He stood at the highest point of the most remote lake in North America; Lake Mead. And he raised his arms high in the air and he said with a slow, controlled, and confident voice, “Let it rain.”
Suddenly, dark thick clouds came out of nowhere with hurricane-like winds, powerful lightning, and deafening thunder. Then the sky began to swell and let loose massive amounts of rain, filling the almost dry lake to full capacity.
The storm came out of nowhere for no apparent reason. Not even weather forecasts had any indication that a storm would cut across the desert, let alone be stationary over one lake for hours at one time. What was going on? And how could this be? Something strange and out of the ordinary was happening, but not as strange as what was coming.
The people of Las Vegas were stunned and amazed at the fact that they’re once almost dried up only source of water had now been filled to capacity with no apparent reason. Who or what was responsible?
As soon as the lake became full of water, the man lowered his arms and began to say, “Die away storm and cease to rain any longer.” Immediately the wind calmed, the rain stopped falling, and the weather became clear again. Then the man turned a bright glow, almost a blinding light. And as quickly as he appeared, he was gone without a trace of evidence. Except for the fact that now the lake was full of water. Data started pouring in from computers around the globe. Scientists began showing up at the lake bewildered and scratching their heads at the now filled to capacity reservoir. Off in the distance a helicopter lands and drops off a man near Hoover Dam.
“I have never seen anything like it!” said one scientist as he stared at the waves of the reservoir with a disbelief look on his face.
“Nor I!” another man standing next to him in a police uniform began to say with a dropped jaw. “And who are you and what are you doing here sir? This is now a restricted area until we can find out what is going on here.”
“Well, Mr. Crenshaw you have to get off this lake~”
And while the police officer was still speaking the man exclaimed with a lowering voice as he was still amazed at the filled lake. “Dr. Crenshaw, Dr. Michael Crenshaw U.S. Science Observatory. How did, how did this lake…” overwhelmed, the doctor could not finish his sentence.
The police officer became excited, moving the man along another direction with his hand on his shoulder as helicopters began to swarm to the area. “You’re the Dr. Crenshaw who is supposed to head the investigation of this anomaly?”
With a cocked head and a bewildering look in his eyes, he looked at the officer and said, “Yes, yes I am.”
“Great!” holding out his hand, “I’m Officer Stevens, head of security, come with me sir. We have everything setup this way!” as the officer took the doctor’s hand with a serious look on his face he said, “Finally, maybe someone can make sense out of this mess!”
The two men got in a police jeep and proceeded to the command center setup at the lake.
“What happened here?” Dr. Crenshaw tried to look straight ahead, as his head bobbed up and down, and back and forth from the rough ride over the terrain.
“Well, Doctor this is a big lake, but two eye witnesses say a man appeared out of nowhere, raised his arms, and then a great powerful storm came.”
“Great… powerful… storm! I would say that’s an understatement considering we have never seen anything like this before, and our instruments have measured some out-of-this-world readings… And what does a man have to do with it?”
“That’s what they said sir, He appeared out of nowhere!”
“Well, Mr. Stevens, no one else gets in or out of this lake until we can find out what caused all of this. And find that man.”
“We are on it sir!”
A bright light shoots across the African night sky and is visible for miles away. Even as bright as the light was, still, no noise was heard, or any signs of a crash, like a meteor falling from the sky. At that moment, a loud rumbling boom cracks the night sky with several flashing lights.
“What is going on here?” one man whispered. And before he could get it completely out of his mouth, it began to rain ferociously. There were not many people awake in the middle of the night. But the locals who were awake became awe struck. It rained until the next day, and never in their life had the people seen so much rain. Just then, the earth began to rumble and quake; the ground began to break up. All of a sudden, large fully grown trees started emerging from the ground out of nowhere. At first the people began to panic, running in sure terror as the massive trees bellowed from the ground. And then as quickly as it began the trees stopped growing.
“How can this be?” a woman says holding on to her child with one hand and clenches her chest with the other. “What took years to destroy by man has now grown from the earth in minutes, only God is able.”
“Never in my life have I seen such a gradual as this. What on earth is going on here?” a local scientist says in a small village of Nigeria studying climate change. He drops all of his notes and instruments as the tall trees swayed over the once barren land.
Back in America, NASA and the NSA is scrambling a team to west central Africa to investigate the second anomaly that has taken place in the last 24 hours on earth. Military leaders and Joint Chiefs of Staff are looking over data and contemplating their next move.
“Sir you gotta’ take a look at this! Satellite images have just beamed back a newly formed forest across the barren plains of Africa. And they have been getting rain for the last two days in the most drought stricken regions.”
“Get me the president on the phone. And find out where our top scientists are and what they are working on? Tell ‘em whatever it is, drop it, this has become top priority.”
Back in Las Vegas, people began talking about the strange occurrences of the storm and Lake Mead rising to capacity in a matter of days. What caused it and why? Not that anyone should be complaining. The reservoir was filled to capacity and that meant people had plenty of fresh water to drink. But something puzzled the scientist, they had been trying to control the weather for decades with not much success. So how could a stationary storm come out of nowhere and dump enough rain to fill an entire lake, and then disappear as fast as it came?
Military leaders began deliberating on how they were going to keep this a secret from the general public.
Meanwhile, at area 51, General Davis blurted, “How are we going to protect the American people from this?”
“Don’t you mean keep this a secret General, and by ‘this’ you mean an unexplainable event?” Dr. Young turned his chair around slowly and began to speak again, “This strange event did not happen in Area 51 General under the night sky. And it can’t be locked away in some hanger either.” He stands up and walks towards the window, “This, general, is much bigger than saucers flying through the sky from outer space. Just how are you going to hide an entire lake filling up with water, and a massive forest sprouting from the ground instantly, that should have taken decades to grow, from the American people or any people for that matter? No, general, this is beyond keeping a secret.” As he looks out of the window at the swollen lake the doctor utters his last words, “Whatever this is, the people, they already know.”
