A storm brewing in my neck of the woods!

My plane was going down. The sound was deafening. The screams so sorrowful. I woke with a start. The sound was a severe thunderstorm. Wind so strong, the windows were pulsating. Fear gripped me and I took refuge under the stairs. When I was little, I would hide under the bed. I don’t fit now. Close my eyes and hope for the best. Five minutes go by, then ten. I hold my breath. Fifteen minutes later the cell has passed. I'm still alive. There’s no tree in my bedroom. I was spared. I am blessed. Thank you God.

      This made me feel like I was in the middle of a storm with you. What I really hate and it terrifies me is electrical storms. We get them here usually at the start of the summer and the lightning flashes all around and the thunder doesn't clap but goes booooooooooom!!!

      This storm was very unusual for this time of year. Normally, I don't have to worry about tornadoes and electrical storms until April and May. The question is would I rather deal with ice and snow or storms? Hmm...

      I live in Oklahoma, so I too am afraid of storms. I love spring, but dread it just the same. My husband says I am worse than a kid when it comes to storms, but oh well! Good essay, voted up and interesting! :)

      Another wonderful essay, you really do have a knack for cramming energy and imagery into such a small amount of words.
