It’s the freaking weather.
We get tornadoes all the time, but I’m getting kinda sick of them. The tornado siren went blaring off in the middle of 6th period, and we all rushed outside into the hallway and huddled together.
At about 2:50, 20 minutes after school as supposed to end, we finally loaded the buses. Right in the middle of the road, a warning began on the radio.
“Blah blah blah severe tornado warning Wilson county blah blah”
I don’t live there, so, not many of us were worried, but I sure was.
But what really saddened me was the wreckage– so many trees all across the road. Even POWER CORDS were strewn across the road. It was the flood of May ’10 all over again.
Exaggeration. 😛 The flood was a bit worse, but, you know, still.
But still, I hated seeing all those trees, that probably stood high and tall for many many years, all broken and splintered.
I’m odd like that.
Anyway, while my neighbors and me were walking home from the bus stop, huddled under a teeny umbrella as the rain poured beside us, we noticed a freaking GUTTER and a WAGON in the middle of the road– plus not to mention all those trash cans.
Stranger, when I reached my front door, I realized that the little cat decor that we had hadn’t moved an inch. It was on the side of the front steps…where it always was.
Strange how a storm can tear apart a gutter but not blow away a light, plastic cat.
So once I get home, I realize the electricity’s out! NO INTERNET!
So I’m stuffing my face with goldfish and reading a book about fairy tales.
Not that I’m complaining, but hey, I need my internet. 😆
Guess what? After all this damage, I still have to go to a band concert!
I’m supposed to get there by 6:30, but it’s nearly 6 and my parents aren’t even home. 😦 I hope they’re okay.
