A couple years ago my wife and I were driving home and took a back road that lead us right into the side of town that we live on, just a couple blocks from our house. The back road isn't too secluded, it’s just off the highway and there are a couple farms and houses along the way, but it’s usually pretty empty. You might see one or two cars passing you ever other time you take the road. Over all it was a pretty normal situation, especially weather wise. I don’t remember what season it was or if it was morning, midday, or evening, but it was daylight and there were no clouds or fog anywhere in site. That part I do remember.

About midway down the back road I noticed a low cloud that was floating across the road. It’s Wisconsin, this isn't that unusual honestly. We got closer and I started to look around for other clouds or fog rolling in. There was nothing, still not that unusual.

As I kept getting closer I didn't think anything of it, until I got to the point that I might actually drive through it if I continued. It was at that point that two sets of eyes turned and looked at both me and my wife. Both of us gasped at the same time. I made eye contact with whatever it was that was closest to me and slammed on the breaks.

As we were stopped in the middle of the road, I realized that it wasn’t a low flying cloud, but two living creatures of some sort, resembling fog or a cloud that were walking across the road. They were maybe six or seven foot tall and one was a bit taller than the other. They were actually touching the road and followed the contour of the ground. They did not actual float across, simply looked as if they were. When they hit the shoulder of the road, they went downhill. They didn't float evenly like fog or a cloud would, they actually moved while touching the ground.

A good overall description is hard. I honestly have no really good way to explain, but the creatures were cylindrical and stood upright, like a tube standing on the ground vertically. For those of you who have seen Donnie Darko, the weird blobby thing that comes out of people and lead them to where they need to go, imagine that, but standing up right and looking more like a cloud or fog than metallic goo.

Something else to note is that there was definitely two creatures, but they were connected. It was as if there was a thinner “cloud” between them, connecting them together. My best way to describe this is to imagine how an ancient scroll looks if you were to prop it up on its side and you separated the two ends a bit. You have the two ends, which would be the two creatures, and then the paper in the middle, connecting the two. The “paper” in the middle was thinner and more transparent that the two creatures. This is another reason I believe we saw some sort of living creatures.

Right as I slammed on my breaks, after they turned to look at us, the “cloud” that connected the two creatures seemed to grow and start to hug or grab around the creature further from us and they both sped up to get out of our way. Like a mother grabbing a child to keep them safe or a husband doing the same to his wife, so they could safely cross the road.

I don’t know what we actually saw, but I definitely saw what I just explained. It was the most surreal experience of my life. I literally felt like I was in a movie and was meeting face to face with a creature from another world for the very first time. I've never been able to find another story similar or anything describing creatures like what we saw. I don’t know what it was, but it was absolutely the creepiest experience of my life.
