Thanks to the Weird News section on my Roku’s NBC News channel, I saw the story about Watertown, NY putting up a sign to acknowledge a paranormal vortex in one of their parks. Thompson Park to be exact.
Apparently there’s been an urban legend in that area for years about people going missing for brief periods of time.
The video was interesting for a couple of reasons. For one, if you go looking for the vortex, don’t expect it to be near the sign. According to Alex Dunbar’s report, the mysterious spot is located somewhere near the golf course.
The other hilarious thing was what Watertown’s mayor, Jeff Graham, said about the vortex:
“I keep bringing people up here I’d like to disappear but it never happens so we’ll keep trying,” joked Graham.
Oh my. I can’t believe a public official said that out loud on camera. Hope he’s a beloved mayor or when he’s up for reelection his opponent’s camp could have a whole lot of fun with that.
I embedded the video below if you’d like to check it out also. If you want to investigate an alleged vortex, Watertown is a place to explore.
