the Cellar poem

The Cellar



When the winds get to blowin'
And the sirens speak my name,
I take a deep breath,grit myTeeth, I feel like I'm taking steps to the guillotine!
I take my dogs,radio and flash light,
Down into the CELLAR and into the night.
But I HATE that place with all the dank and musty smells,and the creepy crawlies with all my might!
I tip-toe into the hell hole with lightning flashing into the air,
Along with the cursing I wish I didn't have to go in there!


I'm just about came to the conclusion that I think I'd fight a TWISTER and THAT I would NOT be a' Fond of;
But THAT would be better than fighting off a grand-daddy-long-legs, Thousand-Legger or worse, a AN-A CON-DA!!!

      Yes. I pray for all the people in this path of these storms.

      Praying all passed the night without incident and that home is still there. We have family in Oklahoma City, OK and in Cedar Rapids, IA so we are praying that folks in those cities are well and safe, too. Lots of Hubbers, myself included, like to write about the weather, but aren't anxious to experience Mother Nature's extremes.

      Ha,Perspycacious, I agree with you! Actually, I have to go over to my brother's house, because of al the storms coming. I would have to be in there all night. NO WAY! I live in a Mobile Home, so there ya go. And that cellar floods, with me in there! I'm a big chicken when it comes to lightning. I'm taking my dogs tonight, and their bones. ????

      Just know that at least, if the dogs go somewhere else, there are probably no bones buried there in that cellar! Or at least that the dogs didn't bury them!

      My little dogs go in there with me too, but when it gets really bad they run off! THAT should tell me something.
