OK Jeff, here's one for ya. I moved to a very small town in S. TX about six years ago. It is a very closed community where I am either too Hispanic or not Hispanic enough. But I have managed to make a few really good friends, on both sides of the racial/socio-economic divide. Now a couple of years ago on of my new friends, knowing that I have an interest in all things "irregular" told me about a Bigfoot sighting that she and her daughter had a few weeks before.We were having a terrible storm, lots of electricity and sheets of sideways rain. They had gone out on their porch(sp?) to watch the storm and during on very close flash of lightening they saw, very clearly, a very large, very wet, hairy hominid walking in a stooped posture (perhaps because of the rain)on the street across from their house. During several more flashes they watched and eventually, the critter turned and looked at them too. They were shaken, but did not feel threatened and continued to watch "him" until he ducked out of sight behind a building.I teased them a bit, but did not discredit their sighting. I asked them if they had reported this to anyone. They had not. "Who would we call?" they asked. Frankly, I had no helpful answer; this being a very small and very divided community.I kind of let the incident slip from daily thought until last spring on a very dark morning as I was heading to work it jumped spectacularly back from memory. I was about to cross a small bridge over a slough when two pickups roared up behind me and passed. In the light of the passing trucks I saw very clearly, if only for a second, a very large, very hairy bipedal hominid standing just off the side of the road. As I was trying to put this event into context, I continued to drive. I did however look into my rearview at the moment I passed the critter and did not see anything. Nothing. I do not think the guys in the trucks saw anything as they were driving very fast. I did not stop. I did not turn around. I went on to work. I did mention the sighting to my employer. " Are you gonna call someone Miss Katherine?" he asked. Who would I call?

I for one think you and your friend saw exactly what you saw. It does at least seem like these things shift in and out of dimension. Sightings come from a variety of poeple, some who never before imagined the reality of such creatures. Sightings seem to be linked to geology. Texas, California, Pensylvania, Oregon, Washington, Canada, etc, etc. This also seems to fit with there being something tangible to their existence.

Hi, i really like the story. and it's so true when you wonder, who would you call? except that now, there is alot of bigfoot organizations out there that are ready to hear anyone's story of bigfoot. we even now have video. one of the stories was with a boy's video,  two boys was playing in a heavy snowy day, a gray day, it was really coming down, and i notice how big the snow was. anyway, the third boy had the video, then one of the boys said , "what is that over there by the tree's?", you can see the boy with the video swing over to the woods, coverd with snow, and coming down so hard, that you could not see a thing, so he kept asking, where? I too was looking, which i thought it was funny, you thought i was holding the camera, lol.  He kept looking, until  the camera was showing this big, wide, dark, not a bear but a creature with two legs that was really wide, and walking close to the edge of the tress.  the boy  was shocked, so was i, and i wassen't even there, i was relive to hear them say, "LET's GET OUT OF HERE"  but not until he had a real good look with the camera,  now showing in "you tube" lately with what i have been reading, people who saw bigfoot, or something that looked like it a long time ago, are now stepping out and telling their side of their stories.

Hello, I'm new to this website and saw your post on the sighting. I'm from South Texas and have never seen anything, but I believe that there are creatures out there that have yet to be discovered. As for your question, " Who would you call?" I believe I would call either the bigfoot field researchers organization or the texas bigfoot research conservancy. The urls are bfro.net and texasbigfoot.org. I hope this helps.

I did share this story with a couple of cryptid groups; did not receive any reply. I guess its really just a matter of "I know what I saw". Or better, at least for me anyway, "I know what I didn't see." . Not bear, not a buffalo, nor trees in the darkness. No owls, not an orangutan, not even an extraordinarilay tall, long haired hippe freak wearing his mama's fox coat.Even though we live in a rather dry area. At first look, place would seem very inhospitible to an animal like "bigfoot", but with a bit of investigation you find that is not so. We have a nice little river with lots of trees and vegetation adjacent. The river runs through a couple of hundred miles of scrub, hardwoods, cactus and purple sage. It eventually empties into a dammed canyon, (or the "damned canyon" as a lot of oldtimers here call it) and forms a large lake. There are very few people here, but lots of cows, deer, wild pigs, turkeys and quail. It would, I think be an area easily able to support a small population of B-feets.
