Sometimes you get the impression that your not welcome in a particular home. So was the case in this one.
We went out for a quick explore and headed to an area Mrs DH had in mind. She had spotted a few homes earlier in the month while traveling to Edmonton airport and thought they would make a good explore. This home was an easy find as it was along a busy roadway, probably watching the hundreds of commuters pass by its door daily.
For such a busy location, the sound of passing cars was muffled by the chirping of frogs in the flooded field behind the property. We haven't heard that in quite a while and paused a minute or two to enjoy the sound. We entered the home by a side door arriving onto a stair landing, where one direction led to the basement and the other up to the kitchen. We went up the stairs and began our explore. Overall the home appeared to be in decent condition considering. Noticeable was the torn down ceilings along the back side of the house which contained the kitchen, bathroom and a bedroom. Looking up at the ceiling where the kitchen fixtures once were, it appeared as if there had been a small fire. It was most likely the ceilings had been purposely torn down to ensure that all traces of the fire had been extinguished.
The home was telling us it was time to go! The first thumping we heard was in a back bedroom. I asked Mrs DH if she had explored the room yet, which she hadn’t. We both went down the hall, opened the door, and took a peak inside. Empty! We explored the other bedroom, and began to hear thumps in the attic above us, sounding as if something was moving across the ceiling. It could have very well been an animal.
