I didn't forget them. I mentioned them in an email to Stan who
was responding to you 4-5 days ago which you ignored,

I also mentioned crushdown tree circles in the forest completed
with seared outer edges on the ground. I asked as well why there
are no crop circles in the hard to get at places like in forests
with trees being affected, etc. rather than easy access places
like farmer's fields with roads nearby.

Perhaps some of the older UFO trace cases with swirled grasses
might have had some root in a weather phenomenon as suggested by
John Rimmer-but it's a stretch and not scientifically
supportable- but those "saucer" nets as they are known, with
depressions, weight related evidence and burn evidence are not
good candidates for weather phenomenon. Ted Phillips has over
800 of these cases he's investigated. he's the expert in that
