Expect The Unexpected!©
By Felina Silver Robinson
It’s a Summer Tuesday afternoon. Your expecting rain, maybe a thunderstorms. Half your children are home safe, the others are still out and about. You begin to worry as the sky darkens and the wind begins to blow. You hustle your way in the front door and settle for a while. As you begin to feel more comfortable, comfort slowly slips away because hale is on the way. The snap, crackle and pop of the thunder and lightning follow by the pellet sounding hail as it bangs at the side of the house, makes your heart sink. Emotions are running high. Everyone is fearful while excited by the unknown. Fire engines sound when lightning strikes and sets a house on fire. Car alarms sing as their windshields shatter, tree limbs and leaves scatter all about. Trees randomly collapse as residents run for cover. The noise dies down, you think its safe to investigate, you tip toe out the door as if hiding from a stranger. As soon as your foot hits the porch, again the lightning strikes and the rain pours down and the thunder torments you with its howl. But as soon as you give up and are ready to let the storm win, the sun returns, the wind disappears and pushes away the clouds.
All of this is hit or miss on a day we all didn’t expect the unexpected!
