I have to admit that this one goes way beyond the boundary of strange and is definitely something worth looking into! Since most of my readers seem to like the stories that are, shall we say, different...I figured this article from Listverse would be a good read!
On May 2007, a lake in Patagonia, Chile, literally disappeared, leaving behind a 30 meter deep pit, icebergs and dry soil. However, this wasn’t a small lake or pond – it was an astonishing 5 miles long! The last time geologists saw the lake in March 2007, they detected nothing strange about it. However, something happened during the 2 month span that not only caused the lake to vanish, but reduced a river that flowed from the lake to a tiny stream. Geologists were puzzled as to why a lake of that size would simply cease to exist. Perhaps, they suggested, an earthquake drained the lake, yet there were no reports of any quakes in that particular area during spring. Meanwhile, UFO enthusiasts concluded that a spaceship drained the lake. The mystery is unsolved to this day.
I'll admit that I'm getting hooked on these mysteries, ya know? At least I figure there's enough to last for a long, long time!
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Let's share some marble cream cake!
