Mostly True Memoirs
The First Spring Storm
Wow, what a spring storm!
I was a nervous wreck all day, checking the news constantly.
Finally, at 6:00 pm, the sirens went off.
I live in the back of the neighborhood, and I can never hear them unless I’m outside and it’s a clear, quiet day.
In other words, I can hear the sirens perfectly on testing day but never in an actual storm.
I subscribed for a phone alert, though, so it’s all good.
We sheltered in the closet.
The storm was so loud it was like a train was going through the house.
At that moment, when it appeared that the roof was going to blow off and it may, perhaps, be the end of times…I got a call from a telemarketer.
I wonder what Rob Anspach would have done.
At any rate, the storm passed without any real damage, just a mess of leaves and debris.
I survived the first spring storm of the year.
And another telemarketing scam.
