Well, it's that time of the year again when it's seems like paranormal cases slow down and investigations are few and far in between. Perhaps spirits cannot tolerate the heat or are they afraid of getting tan? Seriously though folks, we have been investigating the paranormal long enough to know that phone calls and reports of the paranormal are scarce in the summer. This is not to say that we never receive any cases, we simply notice that the amount of reports cannot compare to the amount we receive in the fall/ winter time. This is a perception that I'm sure many paranormal investigators notice.
I believe that the reason could possibly be the fact that most people don't notice as much paranormal activity when it is hot out. The reason being, that more people tend to be outside a great portion of the day rather than in the winter when most people spend a majority of their time indoors. Also, most people aren't thinking about the paranormal in the summer, whereas during the fall season we have Halloween where just about everyone thinks about ghosts.
Even though we're usually focusing on life rather than the paranormal during the summer, we are always on the case keeping our eyes and ears open for new ideas, methods, and constantly reviewing old cases for new evidence and information. In a sense, I'd like to say that the summer is a good catch up time.
